Raspberry-Ricotta Blintz Bake


Sweeten up your brunch with this delightful Raspberry-Ricotta Blintz Bake!  Use store-bought crepes, or make your own, for this unique bake featuring a lemon curd and ricotta mixture and fresh raspberries.  Creamy ricotta helps to cut the sweetness from the sugar and jam, keeping your bake well balanced in flavor.

  • 1 jar (10 ounces) lemon curd
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 20 store-bought crepes (9 inches)

1. Heat oven to 350°F
2. Whisk the ricotta, lemon curd and salt in a large bowl.
3. Spread each crepe with heaping 2 tablespoons ricotta mixture to within 1 inch of edges. Fold each crepe in half three times to form triangles.
4. Arrange half of the crepes in an even layer on the bottom of a greased 11 x 7-inch baking dish. Sprinkle with 1 cup raspberries. Top with remaining crepes.
5. Bake for 18-22 minutes or until crepe edges are light golden brown.
