Creamy Cheese Blintzes

Western.Chefs's picture
  All purpose flour 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Egg 1 Large
  Egg whites 2 Large
  1% milk 3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs)
  Unsalted butter 1 Tablespoon, melted
  Sugar 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Vegetable oil 1 Tablespoon
  1% cottage cheese 1 Pound
  Sugar 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  All purpose flour 3 Tablespoon
  Vanilla 1⁄2 Teaspoon

1. To prepare the blintzes: In a large bowl, with an electric mixer set on high, beat the flour, egg, egg whites, milk, melted butter, and sugar for 1 minute or until smooth.
2. Brush the inside of a crepe pan or a heavy 6-inch skillet with a little of the oil and heat over moderately high heat. Spoon 2 tablespoons of the batter into the skillet, tilting it quickly so the batter spreads evenly and thinly coats the bottom. Cook on one side for 1 minute or only until the top is dry and blistered, then transfer with a spatula to a flat surface, browned-side-down. Repeat the process, making 12 blintzes.
3. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Set out an un-greased baking sheet. To prepare the filling: In a medium-size bowl, stir all of the ingredients until blended. Spoon about 3 tablespoons of filling in the center of each blintz, fold in 2 sides about 1 inch, then the other 2 sides, overlapping them slightly to resemble an envelope. Place seam-side-down on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 12 minutes or until the filling is set, then re-set the oven to broil. Broil the blintzes for 2 minutes or until lightly browned. Top with the fresh berries and serve hot.
