TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. + standing Bake: 20 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 egg
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • FILLING:
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 6 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 eggs, separated
  • 1/4 cup raisins, chopped
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • Additional sliced almonds, optional

Directions

  • 1. In a bowl, combine the flour, milk, water, egg and salt; beat until smooth. Cover and let stand for 1 hour.
  • 2. In a lightly greased 8-in. skillet over medium-high heat, add 2-3 tablespoons batter; lift and tilt skillet to cover bottom. Cook until lightly browned; turn and brown the other side. Repeat with remaining batter, greasing skillet as needed. Stack pancakes with waxed paper between layers.
  • 3. For filling, beat cream cheese and sugar in a bowl until light and fluffy. Beat in egg yolks. Stir in raisins, almonds, lemon peel and salt. Place 1 tablespoon filling down the center of each pancake; set remaining filling aside. Roll up pancakes and place seam side down in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish.
  • 4. In a small bowl, beat egg whites until stiff; fold in reserved filling. Spoon over pancakes; sprinkle with brown sugar and almonds if desired.
  • 5. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Yield: 13 pancakes.
