Recipe amount: 14 Blintzes

Blintzes with sweet cheese

Crepes batter
cup self rising flour
cup milk
3 each eggs
Tbsp unsalted butter (for cooking)
Sweet cheese filling
2 cup cottage cheese (lowfat 2%)
1 cup sour cream
5 Tbsp sugar
2 Tbsp instant vanilla pudding powder
½ tsp vanilla extract
tsp cinnamon

Preparation steps:
  1. Mix the crepes batter in a large bowl.
  2. Brush the bottom of an 8-10 inch non-stick skillet with 1/3 tsp of butter. Pour ¼ cup batter into the skillet and swirl the batter evenly. Cook for 45-60 seconds on medium high heat. Use a spatula to flip the crepe and cook for additional 30-45 seconds. Set aside on a plate and repeat the process for all crepes.
  3. Filling: In a large bowl smooth the texture of the cottage cheese using a hand blender.
  4. Add sour cream, sugar, instant vanilla pudding powder, vanilla extract and cinnamon. Mix well.
  5. Assembling the blintzes: spoon 2-3 Tbsp of the cheese filling in the middle of the crepe. Fold sides and roll the crepe to encase the filling. Repeat for all blintzes.
Serving:Warm up in a slightly buttered non stick skillet. Cook for 1-2 minute, flip gently and cook additional 1-2 minute. Serve with whipped cream or confection sugar.
