Blueberry-Orange Blintzes

Blintzes are aces for brunch, because I can make the crepes ahead. They taste so indulgent that guests don’t know they’re missing fat and calories. —Mary Johnson, Coloma, Wisconsin
  • Total Time
    Prep: 15 min. + chilling Bake: 25 min.
  • Makes
    6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup fat-free milk
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 carton (15 ounces) part-skim ricotta cheese
  • 6 tablespoons orange marmalade, divided
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries or raspberries, divided
  • 2/3 cup reduced-fat sour cream

Directions

  • In a large bowl, whisk egg, milk and flour until blended. Refrigerate, covered, 1 hour.
  • Preheat oven to 350°. Place a 6-in. skillet coated with cooking spray over medium heat. Stir batter; fill a 1/4-cup measure halfway with batter and pour into center of pan. Quickly lift and tilt pan to coat bottom evenly. Cook until top appears dry; turn crepe over and cook 15-20 seconds longer or until bottom is cooked. Remove to a wire rack. Repeat with remaining batter.
  • In a small bowl, mix ricotta cheese, 2 tablespoons marmalade, sugar and cinnamon. Spoon about 2 tablespoons mixture onto each crepe; top with about 1 tablespoon blueberries. Fold opposite sides of crepes over filling, forming a rectangular bundle.
  • Place blintzes on a 15x10x1-in. baking pan coated with cooking spray, seam side down. Bake, uncovered, 10-15 minutes or until heated through. Serve with sour cream and the remaining marmalade and blueberries.
    Freeze option: Freeze cooled crepes between layers of waxed paper in a freezer container. To use, thaw overnight in refrigerator overnight. Proceed as directed.
Health Tip: Save even more: Use reduced-fat ricotta instead of part-skim and save 30 calories and 3 grams fat per serving.
