Yield: 18 Crepes
- 16 ounces cottage cheese
- 2 egg yolks
- 3 Tablespoons sugar
- 1 Tablespoon grated orange peel
- ½ cup blanched almonds, chopped
- 4 eggs
- 1 cup flour
- 1 cup milk
- 1 Tablespoon light brown sugar
- ¼ teaspoon almond extract
- Non-stick cooking spray
- ½ cup sugar
- 2 Tablespoons cornstarch
- 2/3 cup orange juice
- 4 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
- ½ cup almonds, toasted and sliced
In a blender, mix cottage cheese, egg yolks, 3 tablespoons sugar and orange peel until well combined. Add chopped almonds and mix until smooth; set aside.
In a blender, mix eggs, flour, milk, brown sugar and almond extract until smooth. Spray crepe pan with non-stick cooking spray; heat over medium heat until hot. Add about 3 tablespoons batter to pan, tilting to make an even layer. Cook on one side until crepe begins to brown, about 1 minute. Place on a sheet of waxed paper, browned side up. Repeat with remaining batter, layering the crepes with waxed paper.
For Blueberry Sauce:
In a saucepan combine the sugar and cornstarch. Stir in orange juice and blueberries. Over medium-high heat, bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Cook and stir until thickened and clear, about 1 minute.
To Assemble and Serve:
Preheat oven to 300°F. Place 2 rounded tablespoons of filling on each crepe. Roll and place on a lightly greased baking sheet. Bake crepes about 15 minutes. Top with blueberry sauce, sprinkle with toasted almonds and, if desired, a dollop of sour cream.
