Hi, I'm Holly Mosier and I'm the Author of Stress Less, Weigh Less. And today, I'm going to teach you how to make Blintze Ricotta. And in my book I call them Holly's Cheese Blintzes. Wait 'till you see how easy these are and they are delicious. We start with two thirds cup of low fat ricotta. Now, I've already pre-measured it into this bowl. But, just be sure that you get the low fat ricotta as oppose to the whole milk ricotta or part skim. There's a big difference in calories and really no difference in taste, so anyway, go for that. We're going to use about a half teaspoon of cinnamon, a dash of vanilla, two packages of a zero calorie or low calorie sweetener. That's basically it. Oh,and the crepes. We're going to be using two crepes. You want t preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Put your two thirds cup of ricotta in the bowl. Next, we're just going to add our half teaspoon of cinnamon. As you can see, I just eyeball it, but you can measure it out; a dash of vanilla and our sweetener. Make sure all the sweetener comes out; sometimes I forget and I leave some in there. If you like them sweet like I do, make sure you get it. Alright. So, now, we're just going to stir this up until it is really well-blended. Okay. We are good to go. Now next, you want a cooking sheet, I just put foil on mine, but you want to spray it with some cooking oil. And now, we're going to load up the blintzes. Now, if you've never worked with crepes before, you're going to see they're very thin and sometimes they break. If they break, we're just going to keep going 'cause it's going to taste really good no matter what, but let's see if we get lucky here. So, take half of the mixture, put it in the middle of the first crepe and spread it out so it's a little bit flat. You don't want a big lump in the middle. Now, we're going to fold this like a burrito. So, fold the edges in, flip the top over and there we go. Now, we do the second one. We're going to take the remaining ricotta mix, spread it out in the middle of the crepe. Oh, these are going to be good! Flip the side seam again, flip the top over and roll it like a burrito. There we go. Now, as an option, you can use some pumpkin spice on the top which I really like; makes the house smell really good when these are cooking. And we are ready to go. Now, I'm going to put these in the oven at 350 for about ten minutes, I just want them to be nicely brown on the top. Alright, we're going to check and see if these are brown enough and they are. These are perfect; makes me happy just to look at them. Okay. Ideally, you'd let them sit for about a minute before you put them on your plate, but I'm going to go ahead and do this now. Now, the reason you wait is there's less chance they're going to break. Ah, that came out in one piece; let's try the second one. And there you have it, Blintze Ricotta. These are 270 calories, super filling and if you like sweets, it's a great way to start your day.
