Raisin Cheese Blintzes Recipe

Milk, butter and cottage cheese combine delightfully in these blintzes. When I was a child, my mother served them often for Sunday brunch or for dessert, and they tasted so good.—Lauren Kargen, Buffalo, New York
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + standing Cook: 15 min. YIELD:9 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • Dash salt
  • Addutional butter
  • FILLING:
  • 2 cups raisins
  • 4 cups (32 ounces) 4% cottage cheese
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • Dash salt
  • Sour cream and blueberry or strawberry pie filling

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the eggs, milk and butter. Combine the flour, sugar and salt; add to milk mixture and mix well. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  • 2. Heat a lightly greased 8-in. nonstick skillet over medium heat; pour 2 tablespoons batter into the center of skillet. Lift and tilt pan to coat bottom evenly. Cook until top appears dry; turn and cook 15-20 seconds longer. Remove to a wire rack. Repeat with remaining batter, greasing skillet as needed. When cool, stack crepes with waxed paper or paper towels in between.
  • 3. Place raisins in a saucepan; cover with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cook, uncovered, for 5 minutes. Drain. In a large bowl, combine the cottage cheese, sugar, cinnamon, salt and raisins. Spoon about 1/2 cup down the center of each crepe; fold ends and sides over filling.
  • 4. In a large skillet, cook blintzes in butter until heated through. Top with sour cream and pie filling if desired. Yield: 9 servings.
