I had never made, nor eaten blintz before. When my husband asked me to make some for him for his birthday I found this recipe and all I can say is WOW! My family raved over how delicious this dish was and I was thrilled with how easy it was to prepare. My kids told me to save the recipe because they are going to want it on their birthdays too. I subsituted cream cheese and cottage cheese for the farmers cheese and ricotta because of personal preference and served it with fresh sliced strawberries and whipped cream.
