Helene Blintz Recipe

This fast, and elegant marmalade helene blintz recipe is a true crowd-pleaser... and it is easy to make!


1 Recipe Dessert Crepes - cooked on one side
1 package (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup dairy sour cream
2 teaspoons grated orange peel
1/4 teaspoon grated lemon peel
1 cup orange marmalade

Directions - Helene Blintz Recipe:

In a small bowl beat cream cheese until light. Stir in sour cream, orange and lemon peel and 1/4 cup of the marmalade.

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.

Arrange blintzes - seam sides down - in a buttered 13x9x2" baking dish or shallow pan. Spread remaining marmalade over the top of blintzes. Broil 6 inches from heat just until marmalade begins to bubble.

Recipe yields about 12 blintzes.
