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.
|Time||30-60 minutes, depending on heating method|
|Directions||Prepare the crêpes according to the recipe.
Lay out a crêpe and add filling. You have a couple of options:
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.
