Ingredients

Crepes

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup water
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons butter — , melted
  • pinch of salt
  • additional butter

Cottage and Cream Cheese Filling

  • 8 oz cream cheese at room temperature
  • 16 oz small curd cottage cheese
  • 1/3 cup sugar — ( I prefer using powdered sugar)
  • 2 cups fresh sliced strawberries
  • jam of your choice — , if you are not using fresh strawberries
  • powdered sugar for serving

Instructions

Crepes:

  1. I recommend putting all ingredients for the crepes in a blender and blending it until well combined. I you prefer not to use a blender, you can beat eggs in a large bowl, adding water, milk, butter and salt. Add flour and keep beating until smooth.
  2. In a nonstick skillet (I am using an 8 inch, 20cm skillet), melt a small piece of butter over medium heat. Pour 3 tablespoons of batter into the center of the skillet. (The amount of batter to make a thin crepe in 8 inch skillet is around 3 tablespoons, just use a small ladle to pour it). Lift and tilt the pan to coat the bottom evenly. When top starts to look dry, turn crepe using a thin spatula and cook the other side for 20-30 seconds more. Repeat the same process with all the remaining batter. Use some butter to coat the skillet each time. Make sure you don’t stack hot crepes on top of each other.

Cottage and cream cheese filling:

  1. Rinse well cottage cheese in a colander and pat dry with paper towel.
  2. In a medium bowl, mash cream cheese and cottage cheese with a fork, then add sugar. Mix until well combined. There will be some lumps from the cottage cheese.

To assemble the crepes:

  1. Using a spatula or the back of a spoon, spread cottage cheese mixture over crepes, add fresh strawberries (fruit of your choice) and fold crepes or roll into log.
  2. Dust some powered sugar on top, serve and enjoy!
