Stage Deli Cheese Blintzes - dairy
For wrapper batter
3 large eggs
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1 1/2 cups farmer cheese
2 cups cottage cheese
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
Make wrapper batter:
In a blender blend wrapper batter ingredients and let stand 30
minutes. In an 8-inch skillet, preferable non-stick, melt half of
butter over moderately high heat. Pour in enough batter to just coat
the bottom of skillet, swirling, and cook, undisturbed, until top is
set and bottom in golden (do not turn wrapper over). Transfer
wrapper to paper towels in one
layer, golden side down. Make more wrappers with remaining butter
In a food processor, blend cheeses, sugar, and cinnamon until
smooth. If necessary, add flour to thicken filling.
Preheat oven to 250°F. and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Put 3 tablespoons filling in center of each wrapper and fold
opposite sides of wrapper over filling until sides barely touch.
Fold in ends to completely enclose filling, forming packets, and
arrange, seams sides down, on baking sheet. Make more blintzes with
remaining filling and wrappers. Bake blintzes, covered loosely with
foil, until heated through, 5 to 10 minutes.
Makes 10 blintzes.
