|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, add ¼ c filling, and fold or roll.
Set aside the blintz and repeat with remaining crêpes and filling.
Two heating options: either heat the oil in a frying pan and fry the blintzes for a minute or two on each side until golden, or oil a baking dish, arrange the blintzes in a single layer, and bake at 350 for 30 minutes.
|Notes||Variations: add raisins or other dried fruit, cinnamon, and/or toasted nuts to the cottage cheese.
Cheese blintzes are ideal for brunch.
