What is a Gluten free Blintz? It's basically a sweet crepe stuffed with cream cheese and jelly. They are sweet and tangy and so satisfying in the morning.
They are an awesome dish to make for brunch. Invite some friends over and get cookin'. Everyone loves brunch right?Gluten free Blintz seem super fancy but are really simple to make and everyone will love them.
You can also just make these for yourself. No party needed. You'll just end up with a lot of them. If your not in the mood to half the recipe, you can save whatever you don't eat for another day. These crepes will last in the fridge for up to 5 days and can even be frozen for longer storage.
This recipe is based off of my gluten free crepe recipe and it's really easy to make. If you think of weekend meals ahead of time like I do, then you'll love a trick I do when I make these crepes. Its not really fancy but it is a time saver. I make the crepe batter the night before. This is beneficial for two reasons. 1. The batter has plenty of time to rest, which allows the flour to absorb the liquid properly, making for a better batter. 2. It saves you time in the morning. No need to wait around for the batter to rest after making it. Once your skillet it hot you're good to go.
You can also change up the flavor a bit by using different jellies. I used Raspberry for the recipe but you can try blackberry jelly, blueberry jelly, grape jelly, or even marmalade. Go where your heart takes you with the flavor.Print

Carefully flip the crepe and cook for another 10-30 seconds to brown the other side.

- To assemble the blintz's, smear a line of cream cheese down the center of the crepe and top with jam. Fold on side of the crepe over the center and then the other side to close the crepe. Repeat with remaining crepes.
