Our classic blintz can easily be adapted for all seasons. For spring and summer, serve with fresh berries, peaches or nectarines. For fall and winter top the blintz with warm compotes of harvest fruits such as apples, pears or cranberries.

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 325°F (160°C).
  2. Grease 9” x 13” (3 L) baking dish; set aside. Place cottage cheese in fine mesh sieve and push through with a rubber spatula until at least ½ cup (125 mL) fluid has been released; discard excess fluid. Blend drained cottage cheese with sugar, egg yolks, vanilla and nutmeg well.
  3. Place scant ¼ cup (50 mL) of filling at bottom of crêpe, fold in sides and roll to enclose filling. Place blintz in prepared pan, seam side down; repeat with remaining filling and crêpes. Cover with foil and bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until heated through.
  • Combine ¼ cup (50 mL) maple syrup with 2 tbsp (30 mL) each fresh orange juice and Gay Lea Spreadables Butter or brick butter in a small saucepan. Heat until fragrant and serve with blintzes.
  • Try cheesecloth (instead of strainer) for an easier way to drain the cottage cheese.
  • For smooth blintz filling, place cottage cheese mixture in food processor and pulse until smooth.
