Pancake Tuesday Cheese Cakes

Long ago I was in a group that met monthly to share recipes and ideas about cooking. Our cooking club would have a theme each month and we would bring a dish, share ideas, and recipes. I really built my collection of tried and true recipes that way. You knew what recipes to keep and the tips of how to make them work.
One of the amazing cooks of the group, Karen, loved a cookbook called Pinch of Salt Lake. It is a junior league cookbook that I now have and LOVE. The recipe for these Cheese Blintzes is in there..we call them cheese pancakes because they are not crepes! In our mind blintzes are crepes.

 Can you see the cottage cheese in there? It really is a different texture. I think this is one of those you will love it or hate it foods.

Topped with strawberry syrup and sour cream!! Yummy
