Did you know last week was National Pancake Week? I didn't realize it until the weekend and so I decided to celebrate! I searched for something different and found an awesome recipe on myrecipes.com. They are blintzes, which means they are a thin pancake and are usually filled with something. They are right in between a pancake and a crepe. They were so good! I doubled the recipe and my family ate every last one of them. They were raving and raving about them throughout the entire meal. I will definitely be making these again soon!
Apple Blintz Pancakes
1 cup pancake mix
1/4 cup cottage cheese
1 cup milk
1 Tbs. vegetable oil
1/4 cup sour cream
Whisk together the egg, cottage cheese, milk, oil and sour cream. Add in the pancake mix and whisk just enough to combine. Let the batter rest for about 5 minutes.
While the batter is resting, cut the apples into thin wedges. Spray a pan with cooking spray and cook them over the oven on medium. They will look like this at the beginning, so pretty...
Let them saute' for a while - keep turning them every couple minutes. Sprinkle cinnamon on top and cook them until you are happy with their texture. I wanted mine cooked well, but not completely soft. This is what mine looked like after cooking...
While the apples are cooking, spray a nonstick griddle or skillet and turn onto medium-high heat. Spoon about 1/3 cup of batter for each pancake onto the griddle. Flip over when bubbles rise to the surface and the edges look cooked.
Fill each pancake with a spoonful of applesauce and a couple of cooked apples. You will love them!
