Eat Dairy on Shavuot
There are several reasons given by our Sages for the custom of eating a dairy meal on Shavuot. One of them is, that on Shavuot, the Jewish People were given the laws of Kashrut and they were unable to use their utensils that day until they were rendered Kosher by the proper process of "kashering" utensils. Thus their meal was a dairy meal.

Cheese Blintzes Recipe


Cheese blintzes are usually served hot, with sour cream or applesauce. They are a special favorite on Shavuot when it is customary to eat dairy products (not hard cheese) before the main lunch meal.

Batter:

  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 Tbsp. sour cream
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 package vanilla sugar
  • pinch of salt

Filling:

  • 16 ounces cottage cheese
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 2 Tbsps. margarine or butter, melted
  • 2 Tbsps. sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla sugar
  • 1/4 cup raisins (optional)

Batter: Combine eggs and milk. Add sour cream and blend well. Add flour gradually. Mix well until batter is smooth. Heat on a low flame a small amount of oil in an 8-inch frying pan until hot but not smoking. Ladle a small amount of batter (approx. 1 ounce) into pan, tipping pan in all directions until batter covers the entire bottom of the pan. Fry on one side until set and golden, approx. 1 minute. Slip pancake out of pan and repeat until all batter is used. Add oil to pan as necessary.

Filling: In another bowl mix all ingredients for filling.

Assemble: Fill each pancake on golden side with 3 Tbsps. of filling. Fold in sides to center and roll blintz until completely closed. Replace rolled blintzes in pan and fry for 2 minutes, turning once.
