    The proper way to serve cheese blintzes is topped with sour cream NOT whipped cream (they’re supposed to be not too sweet!) Strawberry are traditional but I prefer seedless blackberry preserves!

      Cheese is traditional, served like you said with sour cream — or even applesauce. Other than that, blintzes can have a filling with a variety of fruits. It depends on your family, of course. : )
