Strawberry Cheesecake Blintzes

I love strawberries and put them on crepes and it's just amazing for breakfast brunch or dessert
you can make crepes, see my recipes for those too

Ingredients
8 ounces mascarpone or cream cheese, softened 
1/3 cup dairy sour cream 
2 tablespoons orange liqueur or orange juice 
2 tablespoons granulated sugar 
1 cup glaze for strawberries, divided
10 ready-to-use crepes, at room temperature 
2 1/2 to 3 cups sliced fresh strawberries or mixed fresh berries
Sour cream



Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

In food processor or blender, place the softened mascarpone or cream cheese with sour 

cream, liqueur, sugar and 1/2 cup of the glaze for strawberries. Cover and blend until 

smooth. For each blintz, spoon 2 heaping tablespoons of the cheese mixture onto center 

of one crepe, spreading into a small circle.

Fold crepe in half over filling, then fold left and right edges to center. Fold over 

once more to make a packet. Place blintzes folded side down on a buttered baking 

sheet. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until blintzes are heated through and edges are 

light golden brown.

To serve, warm remaining 1/2 cup glaze on HIGH power of microwave for about 45 seconds 

or until heated through. Place two blintzes on each serving plate; spoon strawberries 

over. Drizzle with glaze, add a dollop of sour cream, and serve immediately.

Makes 5 servings.
