LEMON-BLUEBERRY BLINTZE SOUFFLE

Our family enjoys cheese blintzes, but making a dozen or more crepes to stuff with delightful cheese is a bit time-consuming. Enter the Blintze Souffle. It tastes just like beautifully stuffed crepes but–surprise, surprise–is easier to make and serve. Gone. All gone 🙂

1-8 oz pkg reduced-fat cream cheese

2 cups small-curd cottage cheese

6 eggs, divided

2/3 cup + 2 tbsp granulated white sugar

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 cup sour cream

1/2 cup lemonade

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened

1-1/4 cup all-purpose flour

2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp lemon zest

1 cup water

2 tbsp cornstarch

1/4 tsp cinnamon

pinch of salt

2 cups frozen (or fresh) blueberries (or other berry/fruit)

2 tbsp lemon juice

1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees; lightly oil 13×9 baking dish

2) To large mixing bowl, add: cream cheese, cottage cheese, 2 eggs (reserving 4 eggs), 2 tbsp sugar (reserving 2/3 cup), and vanilla extract; beat on medium speed for 2 minutes; set aside

3) To large mixing bowl, add: reserved 4 eggs, sour cream, lemonade, and butter; beat on medium speed for 2 minutes; gradually beat in flour, 1/3 cup reserved sugar (reserving 1/3 cup), baking powder, and lemon zest

4) Pour half the egg-sour cream batter into bottom of prepared baking dish; gently spoon cream cheese mixture over batter; gently pour remaining egg-sour cream batter over cream cheese mixture; bake in oven 45-50 minutes until souffle puffs, is lightly golden, and just firm in the center

5) 10-15 minutes before souffle is ready to come out of the oven, add to a medium-sized saucepan: water, remaining 1/3 cup sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, salt, blueberries, and lemon juice; cook over medium-high heat, stirring often, 8-10 minutes until berry mixture thickens; remove from heat

6) Remove souffle from oven, spread berry mixture over top (or you can serve on the side), and enjoy!

Servings: 6-8
