ABC Cheese Blintzes

Another recipe out of our Baking for All Occasions. The crepes recipe is a go to recipe. Quick, easy and tasty. I made in the blender and put in the fridge..and poured from there. I love saving dishing and time.
Creating the crepes..they make up easily and beautifully.

Brown nicely and slide right off the pan.

Adding the cheese mixture. I saw on food geek that you can use ricotta or cream cheese in place of Farmer's cheese.

I was thinking of egg rolls when I was rolling these blintzes...same rolling technique.

I didn't have 1 crepe break.

The recipe made 18 crepes for me.

We tried them with powdered sugar but our favorite was with....

Lemon Curd!!! Fresh lemon curd made them so wonderful. Would have been great with fresh berries. The filling recipe makes a ton. I think too much...but I couldn't see how to half the recipe.

I thought these were fantastic. I opted to make my own ricotta and thought it was a great addition.

Thanks for a great recipe selection, Toni. This were a big hit! And I can see how lemon curd would pair up nicely, given the citrus zest in the filling.
