Cheese Blintzes

Budget.Gourmet's picture
  Eggs 5
  All purpose flour 2 Cup (32 tbs), sifted
  Milk 2 1⁄2 Cup (40 tbs)
  Vegetable oil 1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs)
  Cream style cottage cheese 2 Pound
  Eggs 2
  Sugar 1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs)
  Vanilla 1 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Butter/Margarine 1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs)
  Cherry pie filling 1 Can (10 oz)
  Dairy sour cream 2 Cup (32 tbs)

1) Make the batter by beating the eggs in a large bowl. Add in sifted flour. Beat till smooth. Add in the milk and oil. Cover the bowl and let chill for 45 minutes.
2) Meanwhile, prepare the cheese filling by blending cottage cheese, eggs, sugar and vanilla in an electric blender. Blend on HIGH for 3 minutes or until smooth.

3) Heat a 8-inch heavy skillet. Add in a little butter to grease the skillet. Pour in 1/4 cup of batter into the skillet, turning it around to cover the bottom completely.
4) Cook the blintz for 2 minutes, or until the underside is golden and set. Remove the blintz onto a plate.
5) Repeat the procedure with the rest of the batter to make 24 blintzes. Place a wax paper between two blintzes so they don't stick.
6) Add 3 tablespoons of the cheese filling in the centre of the cooked side of each blintz. Place two opposite sides overlapping over the filling. Fold the ends towards the middle on the seam side.
7) In a large skillet, melt the butter or margarine. Cook the blintzes, their seam side down till they brown.

8) Serve the blintzes warm. Garnish with a scoop of sour cream on top.
