If you love crepes this is a step by step recipe so you can make them at home. I was excited that I now can make them myself. I just adore crepes and with a sweet cheese lemony flavored filling they are just heavenly good. We made these in a Polish cooking class I took last month in March 2013 with Chef Tad. Hope you'll give them a try.

My recipe comes from Chef Tad who taught our class.

How to Make Crepes-Nalesniki w/Sweet Cheese Filling

Step-by-Step

  1. With a whisk, beat eggs well. Add your milk, water, salt & oil and whisk together. While whisking together gradually add the flour and keep mixing till lump disappear. If there are still lumps in mixture allow it to sit several minutes and whisk again. This batter will be very thin.
  2. Preheat pan over a medium-high heat. Make sure you are using a well seasoned 9-inch pan or non-stick pan and if need be brush a little oil on pan for the first crepe.
  3. Pour 1/4 cup batter into pan and twirl to coat the entire bottom with the batter.
  4. Fry till lightly browned and flip crepe and lightly brown on other side about 20 seconds.
  5. Stack all your crepes on a plate while making them.
  6. SWEET CHEESE FILLING:
    Mash your cottage cheese well with a fork or potato masher & zest your lemon or orange. Add the rest of ingredients and mix well. We loved the strong flavor of lemon zest but you can add a smaller amount if you want.
  7. Spread about 1 tablespoon cheese mixture across and off-center of crepe. The line of mixture should be about 1 inch wide. Try not to spread to the edge of the crepe or the filling may leak out.
  8. Roll up crepes and fry lightly in butter.
  9. Sprinkle crepes with powdered sugar and serve. You can add some fresh sliced fruit, homemade jam or just a drizzles of chocolate or caramel syrup. Whatever you love best. They taste incredible!
