"Boggie" Baking Tips and Recipes

"Boggie" got her name from her baby sister, Betty Jean. When Betty tried to pronounce "Margaret", it came out "Boggie", and the name stuck. All of "Boggie"'s sisters and brothers, nephews and nieces call her that to this day.

When she sets to cooking, she cooks up enough for Farouk's army, but it's always delicious.

Her column is updated every day or thereabouts, so check back to see what's doing in "Boggie"'s kitchen.

BAKED CREAMY CREPES

Makes 20 to 24 crepes.
These filled, rolled crepes are much like cheese blintzes.

2 eggs, at room temperature
1-1/2 cups milk, at room temperature
1 tbsp sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup flour
1 tbsp melted butter

Filling:

8 oz cottage cheese, at room temperature
1 egg, at room temperature
2 tbsp sweet cream, at room temperature
1/4 tsp salt
Dash cinnamon
1 cup whipping cream, at room temperature

Preheat oven to 350F.
Butter sides and bottom of a 2-quart casserole dish.

Crepes: Heat a lightly greased crepe pan or skillet over medium-low heat.
Beat eggs and milk.
Stir in sugar and salt, followed by flour and melted butter.
Batter will be very thin.
Pour a few tablespoons into center of pan; tilt pan to distribute batter evenly.
Cook until crepe is lightly browned on bottom and firm to the touch.
Remove to a plate.
Repeat with remaining batter.

Filling: Combine cottage cheese, egg, sweet cream, salt, and cinnamon in a bowl; mix well.

Assembly: Place 1 tablespoon filling in center of a crepe.
