Cheese Blintzes

Originating in Poland and similar to the French crepe, a blintz is a soft pancake wrapped like an envelope around a velvety cheese filling. For extra sweetness and flavor, we drizzle our blintzes with a vibrant strawberry sauce that you may recognize from our cheesecake recipe.

STEP ONE – Preparations

  1. Lightly spray a 15x10x1-inch baking pan with canola spray.
  2. Get out a small glass measuring cup, a food processor or blender, and an 8-inch frying pan.
  3. Get out a large serving plate and a small saucepan.
  4. Set up a cooling rack.

STEP TWO – Make the Batter


2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 ½ cups milk
3 large eggs

⅔ cup all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon fine sea salt


  1. In the small glass measuring cup, microwave the butter for 40 seconds.
  2. In the food processor or blender, blend the milk, eggs, flour, and salt until smooth.
  3. Add the melted butter and blend until incorporated.
  4. Cover and chill in the refrigerator for 2 hours.

STEP THREE – Make the Filling


6 tablespoons cream cheese
1 cup cottage cheese
¼ cup white sugar
½ teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. In the food processor or blender, blend the cream cheese, cottage cheese, sugar, and vanilla until smooth.
  2. Set aside and preheat the oven to 350°F.

STEP FOUR – Make the Blintzes

  1. In the 8-inch frying pan, melt a little butter over medium heat.
  2. Pour 3 tablespoons of batter onto the pan and tilt to coat the entire bottom.
  3. Cook for 2 minutes.
  4. Lift one end with a rubber spatula and use your hands to flip.
  5. Cook for another 30 seconds until lightly golden.
  6. Transfer the blintz to the cooling rack and add the next round of batter.
  7. Once all the blintzes are cooked and cooled, place on a clean surface.
  8. Fill each with 2 tablespoons of filling and fold the opposite sides over the filling.
  9. Fold over the lower piece and roll into an envelope shape.
  10. Place seam side down in the baking pan.
  11. Bake for 15 minutes until lightly browned around the edges.
  12. Transfer the blintzes to the serving platter.

STEP FIVE – Make the Strawberry Sauce


2 cups sliced fresh strawberries
¼ cup white sugar


  1. In the small saucepan over medium heat, combine the strawberries and sugar and cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Puree the sauce in the food processor and drizzle over the blintzes.
