I have been seeing blintzes around the food blogging sphere for a while and I had been wanting to try them. From the recipes that I found blintzes are essentially a crepe wrapped around a cheese filling and covered with a sauce. I had been wanting to try making blueberry blintzes and this weekend the farmers market was full of the local blueberries. What better way to kick off blueberry season? After looking at a bunch of recipes I came up with this one. I used my standard crepe recipe and I went with a combination of cream cheese and cottage cheese for the cheese filling. I really like the combination of blueberries and maple syrup and I could not resist adding some maple syrup to the blueberry sauce. The blintzes took a bit of time to make but they were well worth it. The blueberry blintzes were so good! The warm cheese filling was a nice combination of sweet and tangy and it went well with the maple blueberry sauce. The blintzes were a perfect weekend breakfast.

1. Place 1/4 cup of the cheese filling into a crepe an wrap it like a burrito.
