Expert Tips

To save time, you can prepare the filling and the strawberry sauce the day before.

Blintzes are one of those dishes that look so elegant you'd think they are expensive and difficult to make. Well, at least that's what I thought when I was a newlywed and starting my journey in the kitchen, some 18 years ago. Now crepes and blintzes are among my family's favorite breakfasts, and being that they are so fancy, we reserve them for special days like birthdays, anniversaries and holidays like Mothers or Fathers' Days. They are so easy to make that you could prepare them any day of the week. Sometimes, I like to surprise my family by preparing delicious blintzes for dinner. Let me share my favorite cottage cheese and lemon stuffed blintzes, with a sweet strawberry sauce recipe with you.

Directions

  • 1 For the cottage cheese and lemon filling: With electric mixer, mix at medium speed the cottage or ricotta cheese, sugar, sour cream, lemon juice and lemon zest until the mixture is creamy. Refrigerate the mix until it is time to assemble the blintzes.
  • 2 For the strawberry sauce: In blender, blend the 2 cups of chopped strawberries with one cup of water. Pour in medium bowl and add sugar. Cook at medium heat, stirring from time to time, until mix changes color. In a small bowl, mix one tablespoon of cold water with corn starch. Stir in cornstarch mixture with the strawberry sauce, and continue cooking for a minute or two, until it thickens. Remove from the heat and let cool.
  • 3 For the blintzes: In a medium bowl, mix all of the ingredients with a whisk until it's soft with, making sure it's not clumpy.
  • 4 Place an 8 to 10 inches saucepan or a nonstick pan over low heat. Melt 1 teaspoon of butter. Pour 1/4 cup of the blintz mix in the saucepan, turning softly so it covers the whole bottom of the pan. Let cook for 1 to 2 minutes, depending on the heat of the stove. Carefully, turn the crepe so it cooks on the other side. Transfer the crepe to a plate, without folding it; repeat the steps with the leftover mixture.
  • 5 To form the blintzes: Stuff each crepe with 2 or 3 tablespoons of cottage cheese and lemon filing. Roll crepes like a burrito. Heat stuffed blintzes in a saucepan to low heat, with a bit of butter, or until they are golden brown.
  • 6 Serve the blintzes on a plate and top with the strawberry sauce. Garnish with the leftover chopped strawberries.
