Goat Cheese Blintzes

Marcus Nilsson

Yield: Yields 16 blintzes

Servings: 4 to 8

This recipe is excerpted from Goat: Milk, Meat, Cheese. Read our review.


For the crepes:

  • 2 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 cup regular or low-fat goat milk (or cow milk, if you must)
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • Goat butter (or unsalted cow butter, if you must), for greasing the skillet

For the filling:

  • 8 ounces fresh chevre or soft goat cheese
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 2 Tbs. granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 4 Tbs. goat butter (or unsalted cow butter, if you must)


Make the crepes:

  • Whir the two eggs and the milk in a blender (preferably) or a food processor fitted with the chopping blade until creamy. Add the flour and salt; blend or process until smooth.

    Lightly grease an 8-inch nonstick skillet with a little butter on some wadded up paper towel. Set the skillet over medium heat, let it warm up a bit, then pour in 2 Tbs. of the flour batter. Swirl and shake the skillet so that the batter evenly covers its bottom. Cook until set, about 30 seconds. Flip the crepe, then cook for another 30 seconds or so, just until firm. Transfer the crepe from the skillet to a plate or cutting board; cover with a clean kitchen towel. Butter the skillet again, add 2 more Tbs. of batter, and keep going, repeating ad nauseam, until you have 16 crepes.

Fill and cook the blintzes

  • For the filling, stir the fresh chèvre or soft goat cheese, egg yolk, sugar, and vanilla in a big bowl until creamy. Set one of the crepes on your work surface, mound 2 tsp. of this cheese mixture in the middle of the crepe, flatten the filling a little, fold the two sides of the crepe to your left and right over the filling, fold up the bottom, the part nearest you. Now roll the crepe away from you so that it folds up into a little packet. Set aside under a clean kitchen towel and continue filling all the crepes.

    Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add 2 Tbs. of the butter and about half the blintzes. Fry them on both sides until crisp and brown, about 4 minutes in all, turning once. Transfer these to a serving platter, add the remaining 2 Tbs. butter to the skillet, and fry the rest of them.
