1 Cup dry cottage cheese
1 Cup low fat milk
1 Cup low fat Ricotta cheese
3 Eggs
Vegetable oil
1 Egg
2 Tablespoon margarine
1 Tablespoon sugar
Plain low fat yogurt
1 Cup flour

Make the cheese filling by beating cottage cheese, pot cheese, 1 egg and sugar together
Combine the flour and milk with the 3 eggs
Beat to make a smooth batter
Heat a 6 or 8 inch skillet
Coat with vegetable oil and pour in 2 to 3 tablespoons of the batter
Tilt the pan to distribute the batter over the bottom of the skillet
Cook until the dough is firm and browned
Remove from the pan and place on a lightly-oiled plate with browned side up
Spoon 1 tablespoon of filling onto the edge of the pancake
Roll up by bringing the edge with the filling to the center of the pancake, fold in each side, and fold over once more to make a sealed pouch
Continue with the rest of the batter

When ready to serve, heat the margarine in a skillet
Fry the blintzes until golden brown on all sides
Serve with yogurt.
