This surprisingly rich-tasting dessert is filled with whipped cottage cheese and almonds, and drizzled with a bit of melted apricot jam.

  • In a medium bowl, stir together cottage cheese, sugar, and cinnamon. Stir in almonds. Dollop 2 tablespoons cheese mixture on the short end of each crepe half; carefully roll into a tight cylinder.

  • Place crepes, seam side down and 1 inch apart, on a baking sheet. Bake until warmed through and beginning to brown on edges, about 5 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, heat jam and 2 tablespoons water in a small saucepan over medium heat (or in the microwave) until jam is liquefied; whisk to combine. With a thin-edge metal spatula, carefully transfer 2 crepes to each of four plates. Drizzle with apricot sauce; sprinkle with reserved almonds. Serve immediately.

Cook's Notes

If you can't find whipped cottage cheese, you can use the regular (low-fat) variety in the same amount; place in the food processor, and blend until smooth.
