Stage Deli Cheese Blintzes
Source: Stage Deli - New York, New York
3 large eggs
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons granulated sugar
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
In a blender blend wrapper batter ingredients and let stand 30 minutes.
In an 8-inch skillet, preferable nonstick, melt half of butter over moderately high heat. Pour in enough batter to just coat the bottom of skillet, swirling, and cook, undisturbed, until top is set and bottom in golden (do not turn wrapper over). Transfer wrapper to paper towels in one layer, golden side down. Make more wrappers with remaining butter and batter.
1 1/2 cups farmer cheese
2 cups cottage cheese
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
In a food processor, blend cheeses, sugar, and cinnamon until smooth. If necessary, add flour to thicken filling.
Preheat oven to 250 degrees F, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Put 3 tablespoons filling in center of each wrapper and fold opposite sides of wrapper over filling until sides barely touch. Fold in ends to completely enclose filling, forming packets, and arrange, seams sides down, on baking sheet. Make more blintzes with remaining filling and wrappers. Bake blintzes, covered loosely with foil, until heated through, 5 to 10 minutes.
Makes 10 blintzes.
