A blintz, similar to a crepe, is a traditional Jewish food that is a thin rolled pancake filled with cheese or fruit and then fried or baked. They take some time to make, so instead I make this one-dish blintz soufflé. It’s delicious and easy to mix, bake, and serve. We serve it with the traditional toppings listed below, a big fruit salad, and coffee cake.
- 1# cottage cheese – 2% milkfat is fine
- 3 oz cream cheese – softened
- ¼ cup melted butter (1/2 stick)
- 6 T sugar
- ½ cup flour
- 3 eggs
- ½ tsp lemon juice
- ½ tsp baking powder
Preheat oven to 350.
Beat together cheeses, butter, and sugar. Beat in eggs one at a time. Add flour, baking powder and lemon juice until mixture combined.
Pour into an 8-inch well-buttered Pyrex dish or 2 qt. casserole. Bake 40-45 minutes until set.
Serve immediately with sour cream, cinnamon sugar, and applesauce on the side.
