1 Recipe Dessert Crepes - cooked on one side
1 pint of fresh strawberries
1/2 cup sugar
1 package (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons butter
Directions - Strawberry Blintz Recipe:
Wash, trim, and thinly slice berries lengthwise. Sprinkle sliced strawberries with sugar and set aside.
In a small bowl combine, cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla until light and fluffy. Gently fold in about 1 cup of the sliced berries.
Spoon about 2 tablespoons of the cheese mixture 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 butter. Add folded blintzes, seam side down, and brown lightly. Turn and brown other side. Serve with remaining strawberries spread over blintzes.
Recipe yields about 18 blintzes.
