Sweet Corn Blintzes Recipe
- 1/2 cup fat-free half-and-half
- 1 cup frozen corn, thawed
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 eggs
- 2 tablespoons butter, melted
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 1-1/2 cups (12 ounces) 2% cottage cheese, drained
- 1/4 cup sugar
- Confectioners' sugar, optional
- 1. Place the half-and-half and corn in a blender; cover and process until smooth. Add the flour, eggs, butter, salt and pepper; cover and process until blended. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
- 2. Heat an 8-in. nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray; pour about 3 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, using additional cooking spray as needed. When cool, stack crepes with waxed paper or paper towels in between.
