A Very yummy recipe for blueberry blintzes. These fried crepes are a family favorite.
1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
2 cups whole milk
3 T butter (melted)
2 T white sugar
1 t vanilla
1/2 t baking powder
1/2 t salt
2 cups blueberries
1 1/4 cups cottage cheese
1/4 cup cream cheese
1 large egg
1 Tablespoon granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon salt
To make the crepes, Mix all the ingredients in a mixing bowl until smooth. You will want the batter very runny with no lumps.
On a medium non stick fry pan, scoop enough of the batter onto the pan to cover completely and form a thin crepe. Cook until the edges are a bit golden, flip over with a spatula and cook on the other side until cooked through. Both sides should be a golden brown. remove to a plate and cover with a clean cloth. Repeat with remaining batter until all crepes are cooked.
For filling, Combine all the filling ingredients except 1 cup of blueberries in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly until mixture is the consistency of jam.
Add the remaining 1 cup of blueberries and cook for 1 minute.
Spoon the filling into the center of each blintze and fold sides around to form a rectangular package.
In a large skillet over medium heat, melt 2 tablespoons of butter. Cook, seam side down, until golden brown, flip and cook until golden brown on both sides.
