These berry filled crepes are a delicious morning treat or an elegant dessert.

Ingredients

  • 1 container cottage cheese (16 ounces)
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 3 Tbs sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 Tbs grated orange peel
  • 1/2 cup chopped blanched almonds
  • 2 Tbs cornstarch
  • 2/3 cup orange juice
  • 4 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 1/2 cup toasted* sliced natural almonds (for topping)
  • Crepes4 eggs
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 Tbs light brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp almond extract

Directions

  • Filling:In a blender container, place cottage cheese, egg yolks, 3 Tbs sugar and orange peel; whirl until well combined. Add chopped almonds; whirl until smooth; set aside.
  • Blueberry Sauce: In a saucepan, combine the remaining 1/2 cup sugar and the cornstarch. Stir in orange juice and blueberries. Over medium-high heat, bring to a boil, stirring constantly; cook and stir until thickened and clear, about 1 minute.
  • Crepes:In a blender container, place 4 eggs, 1 cup each flour and milk, 1 Tbs light brown sugar and 1/4 tsp almond extract. Whirl until smooth. Spray crepe pan with non-stick cooking spray; heat over medium heat until hot. Add about 3 Tbs batter to pan, tilting to make an even layer. Cook on one side until crepe begins to brown, about 1 minute. Place on a sheet of waxed paper, browned side up. Repeat with remaining batter; layering the crepes with waxed paper.
  • To assemble, place 2 rounded Tbs of filling on each crepe. Roll and place on a lightly greased baking sheet. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  • To serve, preheat oven to 300°F. Bake filled crepes until hot, about 15 minutes. Top with blueberry sauce, sprinkle with toasted almonds and, if desired, a dollop of sour cream.
