Classic Cheese Blintzes


1. Combine farmer's cheese, sour cream, maple syrup, egg yolk, and lemon zest in a medium bowl and stir until smooth and well-combined; gently fold in strawberries. Place 1/4 cup filling in the center of each crepe. Fold bottom of crepe over filling, tuck in sides, and roll into a burrito-like shape.
2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat until shimmering. Working in batches, add blintzes to skillet and fry until golden brown, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer blintzes to a paper-towel-lined baking sheet and repeat with remaining blintzes. Serve with more strawberries, sour cream, and maple syrup.
