I have a question about the recipe "Lemony blintzes
I used ricotta cheese, way too liqudey! Remedy would be to use farmer cheese or perhaps one less yolk?

The recipe calls for farmer cheese. When we tested them, we didn't have any problems with them being too wet. Definitely try them again with farmer cheese and let us know how they turn out!
You can also drain the ricotta in cheesecloth for a bit before using it. That is our fix, but fresh farmer's cheese is tons better in blintzes - the flavor is different, as well as the texture. That was what my grandmother used.
