Orange Blintzes

Recipe by  

"Delicious, subtle orange flavor highlights this old world favorite. Whether for holidays or if I need a ticket out of the doghouse, my wife loves these and eats 'em about as fast as I can make 'em. Don't be scared, blintzes are actually very easy to make. They fill the house with a unique baking/frying smell which shouts, Comfort food is on the way! I hope you enjoy these as much as we do."

Directions

  1. Mix 2 tablespoons of sugar, 1 teaspoon of orange zest, salt, and flour in a small bowl. Combine milk and yogurt in a separate bowl. Stir in olive oil and mix until smooth. Beat 4 eggs in a large bowl, then add orange juice. Stir in the yogurt mixture followed by the flour mixture. Beat until smooth. Allow batter to rest at room temperature for 1 hour.
  2. Beat 1 egg with 3 tablespoons of sugar, then add butter and cottage cheese, mixing until smooth. Stir in the bread crumbs and 1 tablespoon of orange zest. Refrigerate until the batter is ready.
  3. Lightly butter a 6 inch skillet, and heat over medium heat. For each crepe, pour 1/4 cup of the batter into the skillet, and immediately rotate the skillet until the batter evenly coats the bottom in a thin layer. Cook until the top of the crepe is no longer wet and the bottom has turned light brown. Run a spatula around the edge of the skillet to loosen; flip the crepe, and cook until the other side has turned light brown. Stack the crepes in a clean kitchen towel, placing waxed paper between each.
  4. Place 2 to 3 tablespoons of the filling onto the golden side of the crepe. Roll the crepe up and repeat until all the blintzes are made. Heat 2 tablespoons of butter in a large skillet and fry 4 to 5 blintzes at a time until golden brown, about 2 minutes on each side.

AWSOME

 
Jan 18, 2014

I made two minor changes: In batter, I used plain yogurt with a tsp sugar and a splash of vanilla. In the filling, I used only 2/3 C of cottage cheese (all I had left) and used graham cracker crumbs. Even with less cottage cheese, I had a lot of filling left over and had to make a second batch of batter. Hubby and I thought these were really good. 22 month old didn't like them at all.

I am going to try subbing matzah meal for the flour and bread crumbs. I love the texture of these blintzes.
