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
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
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.
