Cheese Blintzes

Although I’ve seen menus with various kinds of fruit blintzes listed, for me cheese blintzes are the only option. The creamy cheese filling complements the warm crêpe so nicely, I can’t imagine filling it with anything else.

Yield 8-10 blintzes
Time 30-60 minutes, depending on heating method
Tools
  • spoon
  • frying pan and spatula OR baking dish
Ingredients
  • 1 batch crêpe batter
  • 2 c cottage cheese, or a mix of cottage and ricotta cheese
  • several T oil or butter
Directions Prepare the crêpes according to the recipe.

Lay out a crêpe and add filling. You have a couple of options:

  1. Long blintz: Spoon a line of filling along the center of the crêpe, leaving about one inch on either end. Then fold the top and bottom over the filling.
  2. Square blintz: Place filling in a square in the center of the crêpe, then fold in the sides and the top and bottom.

Set aside the blintz and repeat with remaining crêpes/filling.

You also have two heating options: you can either heat the oil or butter in a frying pan and fry the blintzes for a minute or two on each side until golden (it can be tricky to flip long blintzes), or you can oil a baking pan and bake the blintzes for 30 minutes.

Notes Variations: add raisins or other dried fruit, cinnamon, and/or toasted nuts to the cottage cheese.

Serve with sour cream, applesauce, berry sauce, or fresh berries.

Cheese blintzes are ideal for brunch.
