These elegant blintzes can be served as an attractive dessert or a brunch entree. The bright cherry sauce gives them a delightful flavor. I sometimes substitute other fruits, such as raspberries, blueberries or peaches. -Jessica Vantrease, Anderson, Alaska

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, combine the milk, eggs and butter. Combine flour and salt; add to milk mixture and mix well. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours.
  2. Heat a lightly greased 8-in. nonstick skillet; pour 2 tablespoons batter into the center of skillet. Lift and tilt pan to evenly coat bottom. Cook until top appears dry; turn and cook 15-20 seconds longer. Remove to a wire rack. Repeat with remaining batter. When cool, stack crepes with waxed paper or paper towels in between. Wrap in foil; refrigerate.
  3. In a blender, process cottage cheese until smooth. Transfer to a small bowl; add cream cheese and beat until smooth. Beat in sugar and vanilla. Spread about 1 rounded tablespoonful onto each crepe. Fold opposite sides of crepe over filling, forming a little bundle.
  4. Place seam side down in a greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 10 minutes or until heated through.
  5. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, bring cherries, 2/3 cup water and sugar to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 5 minutes or until heated through. Combine cornstarch and remaining water until smooth; stir into cherry mixture. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Serve with crepes. Yield: 9 servings.

Yummy Christmas breakfast.

Easy but delicious. In a rush, canned blueberry pie filling works for topping.

I absolutely HATE Cherries, so I substituted a strawberry sauce. 1 pt of fresh or frozen strawberries (thawed), 1/8 cup water or the juice from the frozen strawberries, 1/2 tsp real balsamic vinegar (optional but well worth it). Puree thoroughly, then add 1/4 cup sugar and stir until dissolved. Add extra sugar to your taste. You CAN cook this before blending. If you do I would bring to a light boil, then add 1-2 tbl of butter before cooling and pureeing. Add the sugar while boiling. Options: substitute orange juice for the water, substitute a squeeze of fresh lemon juice for the balsamic vinegar.

Recipe is delicious. There are some tricks that I would like to share. First of all, you need to add 4 tablespoons of batter to the 8-inch skillet. 2 tablespoons only coats half of the pan. Also, I used 2% cottage cheese, fat free cream cheese, and skim milk, and it turned out fine. Lastly, it takes a long time to cook & flip each individual crepe; next time I am going to try to have 2 pans going at once. Last time I made these, I made the crepes the day before in order to save time. These are easy, but time-consuming. The taste is worth it, though.
