Just the filling I was looking for! I was not able to find farmers cheese, but used a neufchatel cheese, which is suppose to be the american equivilent. I used my own crepe recipe that was very similar. They turned out beautifully with fresh blueberries and rhubarb sauce. They were a great breakfast start to our New Year. Thank you!
these are great the kids loved them
This was a stretch for my level of cooking but I really enjoyed the learning process! I had never made crepes before and it took a little practice to get them to come out right. The trick I found was to use a VERY lightly buttered / oiled pan. I couldn’t find farmers cheese so I used unripened goats milk cheese. It has the same consistency as farmers cheese but as it turns out it is a little more tart. If using this cheese again I’d add a little more sugar to compensate. With everything made I was now ready to roll up some blintzes! I had a tough time getting them to stay together. I googled some blintz images and saw that a lot were made into square pockets instead of rolls. I put a dab of filling in the middle of the crepe, folded the sides in and then folded in the top and bottom. I found it much easier than rolling and it stayed together a lot better, plus I could get a lot more filling in them this way! I tried frying a couple up right away but this was a mistake. They flopped open in the pan. I let the others sit for a bit and they firmed up nicely and were much easier to fry. All in all a great recipe and the end product was delicious. I’ll definitely be making this again!
The blintz filling in this recipe is great! (I used another French crepe recipe I already had.) We had a family breakfast after Christmas, and everyone enjoyed these, with canned blueberry pie filling, and my favorite, raspberries! I used cream cheese in place of the farmers cheese and it was perfect!
Fun to make and tasty.
I made another crepe recipe, but used the filling in this recipe. I added an additional tablespoon sugar and an additional teaspoon vanilla, plus a dash of cinnamon, and it was delicious!! My son, who is a huge blintz fan and one of my critics, loved them. Topped with strawberry sauce and whipped cream made them restaurant quality. This is a great basic cheese filling that can be tweaked in many ways. I will make these again and again.
This recipe for Cheese Blintzes is delightful... I had to modify it a little for our gluten-free diet, but not difficult at all ~ using a gluten-free flour blend. Very tasy! Thank you!
