Ingredients:

1 Recipe Basic Crepes - cooked on one side
1 package (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
2 tablespoons light cream or half and half
2 tablespoons butter
Pineapple Sauce Recipe:
1 can (6 oz.) frozen pineapple juice
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup water


Directions - Pineapple Blintz Recipe:

In a small bowl combine and beat together cream cheese, and half & half cream until fluffy.

Spoon about 1 tablespoons of the cream cheese into the center of the browned side of each crepe. Fold your blintz in thirds (one edge to the center covering the cheese mixture, then the opposite edge to the center - overlapping in the middle). At this point, the blintz will resemble a rolled shape. Next, fold each open end of the blintz to the middle. Blintz should now resemble a square or pocket shape.

In a large skillet melt 2 tablespoons butter. Add folded blintzes, seam side down, and brown lightly. Turn and brown other side.

Meanwhile in saucepan combine pineapple juice concentrate, sugar, 1/2 cup butter and water. Heat mixture to boiling. Boil for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Spoon pineapple syrup over hot blintzes to serve.

Recipe yields about 16 blintzes.
