Cheese Blintzes

2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup flour
1 TBSP melted butter
1 TBSP sugar
1 tsp vanilla
A pinch of salt

3 oz. cream cheese, softened
8 oz. (1 cup) ricotta cheese
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup sugar

Blend all the ingredients for the crepes in the blender until smooth. Cook crepes in a non-stick skillet over medium heat, flipping when the edges start to look dry.

Combine the filling ingredients until they are smooth. Place 1-2 TBSP of filling in the middle of a crepe and fold the sides over, then fold up the top and bottom. Place the filled crepe seam side down in a buttered 9" square pan. Repeat with the rest of the crepes, until the filling is used up.

Bake at 350 degrees for 10 min. You can top the blintzes with jam, whipped cream, chocolate syrup, whatever sounds good : )

These tasted really good, but the filling was a little thin, so next time I will probably add an egg to the filling and bake the blintzes for a little bit longer (maybe more like 20 min), to thicken the filling up.
