Cheese Blintzes Recipe

Cheese BlintzesIt's time to take care of our sweet tooth by making these delicious crepes stuffed with an equally awesome cheese filling. Although there are different types of filling one can use for this recipe, we'll try to keep the original one. These mouthwatering crepes can be served in two different ways. Either, as it is, immediately after completion or after refrigerating them for a day or two. I prefer the latter option. Feel free to serve these stuffed crepes with lightly caramelized fresh fruits or with a large scoop of your favorite ice cream. The extent to which you cook the crepes can change the texture and flavor of this recipe. So, let's get started and make this fulfilling and creamy dessert for our near ones and fast friends.
