  1. Place the milk, whole eggs, salt, and flour into a blender. Blend until smooth. Refrigerate at least 20 minutes. Meanwhile, make the filling by beating together the cottage cheese, egg yolk, melted butter, sugar, lemon juice, and vanilla extract in a bowl with an electric mixer until smooth.
  2. Preheat an oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Lightly grease a baking sheet.
  3. Melt some of the 2 tablespoons of butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Pour in about 2 tablespoons of the batter and tilt the pan to completely coat with the batter. Cook until golden on the bottom, and no longer wet on the top, about 2 minutes per crepe. Repeat with remaining batter.
  4. Place 1 to 2 tablespoons of the filling near one edge of a crepe. Fold this side up towards the center, then fold the sides in. Fold the top over the filling, and place seam-side-down onto the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining crepes and filling.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven 10 minutes, then sprinkle with cinnamon sugar, and continue baking until lightly golden, about 5 minutes more.

I followed recipe, but used ricotta cheese. Batter was just fine. I even used skim milk. Served with strawberry preserves and sour cream, a must. This is a hit with my friends and me.

These were delicious! Be sure to use full fat cottage cheese - I used low fat (what I had on hand) and it went runny when baked, but the taste was fantastic! I doubled the batch and made some ...

Just so so. Crepes came out fine, but the filling tasted too much like cottage cheese for my liking. We topped it with canned cherry pie filling or sugar & cinnamon. Tasty but could be better.

I used Basic Crepes from AR as the base as this is our favourite recipe, I doubled the recipe which made 12 crepes with a 1/3 cup scoop. For the cheese part, I think the recipe submitter means d...

Great recipe. Other reviews are correct, I needed a double batch of batter for appx. 15 crepes. I also used ricotta cheese. We use a low sugar fruit spread as a topping. My family loves them.
