None of the stores around here sell the frozen blintzes and I've been craving them for so long, had enough today, and decided they can't be that hard to make and sought out a recipe, man it was so worth it. My kids weren't so thrilled when they saw me add cottage cheese, but wow there was nothing left on their plates. the toughest critic is still at work, but she will love it.
Essentially Very Yummy Blintzes. However, the cheese filling (I used Farmer Cheese), was extremely "lemony". If you're not a fan of lemon flavor, then you'll want to reduce the amount of zest of lemon you use. Also, I found that the filling recipe is probably enough to fill closer to 40 blintzes than 20. Also, the Crepe recipe only yielded about 15 Crepes (I tried it twice in the same day). With a few adjustments, these are the perfect Blintzes. **Tip: Get the Crepes as thin as you can. If they are too thick, the blintzes won't roll properly.
These were a big hit. The kids said it was like eating dessert in place of dinner. I used orange zest instead of lemon and mascarpone instead of cream cheese. We topped with fresh strawberries and sour cream. EXCELLENT!
