Strawberry Blintzes


I just harvested some strawberries from my garden and was trying to think of a meal/dessert I could use them in and remembered how tasty blintzes were.  Here is the recipe:

Strawberry Blintzes consist of 3 parts...the crepe, the cheese filling, and the strawberry sauce.

Crepes:
  • 1 c flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 c milk
  • 2 T butter (melted)
  1. Whisk all of the ingredients together, making sure there are no lumps.
  2. Pour 1/4 c of the mixture into a lightly buttered frying pan on medium heat.
  3. Flip after approx. 30 seconds.
Cheese Filling:
  • 1 1/2 c cottage cheese
  • 4 oz. cream cheese
  • 1/4 c sugar
  • 1 t lemon juice
Mix all ingredients together.

Strawberry Sauce:
  • 2 c strawberries
  • 2 T sugar (or maple syrup)
  • 2 T water
  • 1/2 t cornstarch
Simmer for 3-5 minutes.

Assembling the Blintzes:
  1. Pour 1/4 c of the cheese mixture in the middle of the crepe.
  2. Wrap it as you would a burrito and place it in a lightly buttered frying pan with the seam side down.
  3. Cook for a couple minutes on each side, until golden brown.
  4. Pour strawberry sauce on top and enjoy.
Serves 4.
