Strawberry Cheese Blintzes Recipe

I found this recipe for cheese blintzes in one of my travel cookbooks, and decided that they would be perfect as a Valentines weekend meal with the kiddos!

Jonathan especially loved this idea, since crepes were a pretty big thing in his home growing up, and he wants to share the crepe making fun with his kids. (He also likes showing off and tossing the crepes without a spatula, haha.

The kids had fun making little faces in their crepes before wrapping them up and eating them like little burritos! (They did NOT want to eat them with a knife and fork, haha!) These are perfect for a Sunday brunch, especially with a mimosa that you float a couple strawberry slices in.

You Will Need:

1 cup cottage cheese
1 cup ricotta cheese
1/3 cup cream cheese
2/3 cup sugar
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cup sliced fresh strawberries
Chocolate sauce to drizzle
Mint sprig, to garnish
16 crepes (Use your favorite recipe! My husband likes the Betty Crocker recipe HERE.)

Place the cottage cheese, ricotta cheese, cream cheese, vanilla and 1/3 cup of the sugar in a food processor or blender. Process until smooth. Pour the mixture into a bowl, cover, and allow to chill in the fridge while you make your crepes!

Slice your strawberries, cover them in the remaining 1/3 cup of sugar, and toss gently to coat. Allow these to chill in the fridge too.

Once you are done making your crepes, spoon the cheese mixture onto a crepe and top with strawberries. Roll the crepes up and place seam side down on a plate. Serve with strawberries on the side, spooned on top, or with chocolate drizzle and mint garnish. Enjoy!

    I’ve had similar versions of this. They are so very good and the kids love them. In fact I can’t think of one kid that’s ever turned them down. Thanks for the recipe.

    Have a fabulous day. ☺

      Yeah, our kiddos nommed them up pretty quickly, giggling and laughing and playing the whole time!! <3

  • 17 February, 2017 at 8:09 pm

    Yummy! What a fun treat for the kiddies! I tend to prefer savory crepes myself – with spinach and cheese.

    • 20 February, 2017 at 3:08 am

      I have only had savory crepes a few times myself, but my association with them is usually sweet.. love them both ways though!

  • 17 February, 2017 at 10:38 pm

    They look very good. Though I would add a little more chocolate. Like a pound or two.

  • 18 February, 2017 at 12:17 am

    I’ve never had homemade crepes. These look super yummy and perfect for Valentine’s week!

    • 20 February, 2017 at 3:14 am

      I don’t like making crepes, I always end up breaking them.. but hubby is a pro!!

      • 21 February, 2017 at 4:59 pm

        I got it!! Thanks for reaching out, I wrote back!!

    • 20 February, 2017 at 3:17 am

      Yeah, the cheese filling is especially scrumptious!!

  • 18 February, 2017 at 4:59 am

    I’ve only ever had savoury blintzes. My best way to eat crêpes is in France from a street vendor, with a dash of lemon juice.

  • 18 February, 2017 at 9:47 am

    Ooh I have some cheese blintzes coming up too-I adore them (and crepes). Yours look amazing!!

  • 18 February, 2017 at 10:44 am

    They look delicious. This type of crepes are considered normal pancakes in Estonia and are traditionally eaten with jam or rolled up and dipped in sugar. Recently I found that I love them together with mashed banana and peanut butter 😀

    • 20 February, 2017 at 5:37 am

      Yeah?! That is so cool! I had no idea… I love learning about all the food cultures out there.. it is so neat! <3

  • 18 February, 2017 at 4:03 pm

    Mmm delicious! I adore crepes, they remind me of holidays to France where every lunch and dinner would be crepes haha 🙂 The chocolate drizzled over these ones looks SO good!

    • 20 February, 2017 at 5:41 am

      I am SO JEALOUS of all of you lucky gals who have been to / live in / live near France!!!! It is on my bucket list!!

  • 18 February, 2017 at 5:37 pm

    Hi Gingi, these crepes look delicious, love the cheese combo, gorgeous pics!

  • 18 February, 2017 at 6:09 pm

    I need to pin this and make it when we go strawberry picking (I also love to try out new recipes!) in May. Or maybe I’ll need to make it before then!


    • 20 February, 2017 at 5:45 am

      Ohhhh, where do you go strawberry picking? That sounds like so much fun!

  • 18 February, 2017 at 10:08 pm

    Deliiicious and I love crepes! My father comes from a French family and crepes were always a big thing at home when I was a child, like to Jonathan, you mentioned. So good that the kids enjoyed the crepes! They really look delicious! I love ricotta, cottage cheese and strawberries, plus a bit of chocolate, so how can I say not to these marvellous sweets! 🙂 Hope you have a very lovely weekend!

    • 20 February, 2017 at 5:47 am

      Yeah, I love that he is so eager to take something joyful from his childhood to share with our kiddos… it makes me so happy to see him so excited about it!

  • 19 February, 2017 at 11:34 am

    That looks super duper delicious! I love mine with lots of berries!

    • 20 February, 2017 at 5:48 am

      Yeah, I stuffed mine and Jonathan was like, whoa!! How are you gonna roll it up?! haha!

  • 19 February, 2017 at 11:35 pm

  • 20 February, 2017 at 8:06 am

    My favorite way to eat crepes is with sugar at the beach in France!

    • 21 February, 2017 at 4:49 pm

      Right?! I keep coming back to this post and getting hungry!

  • 20 February, 2017 at 1:27 pm

    these look absolutely perfect! for me, crepes are definitely all about the filling and your blend is awesome, especially when strawberries are added!

  • 20 February, 2017 at 6:12 pm

    I really like your recipe, that dessert looks like from restaurant, I’m sure that it’s delicious as well 🙂

    Have a lovely evening dear,

    • 21 February, 2017 at 4:50 pm

      Awwww, thanks!!! I usually suck at plating, lol!

  • 20 February, 2017 at 7:06 pm

    Oh my, this is making me hungry! Lol. I’m going to try and get the ingredients for this later this week.

  • 20 February, 2017 at 8:33 pm

    I’ve never made cheese blintzes, but it looks like the perfect Valentines meal. I’m a sucker for strawberries, and who doesn’t love crepes. I hope you had a great Valentine’s Day Gingi 🙂

  • 20 February, 2017 at 9:08 pm

    Oh they turned out absolutely elegantly served. Just gorgeous and a real treat for a morning breakfast. Makign real crepes from scratch is a personal challenge lol.

    • 21 February, 2017 at 4:56 pm

      Awww, thanks Evelyne! That is a huge compliment coming from you, you are one of my favorite food bloggers!!!

    OMG – I just want to eat these right away! Totally love this recipe!!! Hugs…

  • 22 February, 2017 at 4:11 pm

    finger foods are so much more fun anyways (; i like eating crepes all the ways. i either want them with a touch of butter and some cinnamon sugar, or packed with delicious fillings. the cheese filling for these sound deliciously spoonable, and you can never go wrong with strawberries!

    • 22 February, 2017 at 5:19 pm

      Mmmmm, butter and cinnamon sugar… sounds sooooo good!!!

  • 25 February, 2017 at 7:34 am

    Thanks a lot 😀

    omg look so delicious 😀 I really need to try


  • 1 March, 2017 at 4:05 am
