Cheese Latkes

Makes 15-18 latkes (pancakes).

Ingredients:

3 cups cottage cheese

6 eggs

3 TBsp sugar

1/2 tsp. vanilla

1 cup flour

Safflower oil for frying

Maple Syrup

Cinnamon Sugar

Directions:

In large bowl beat eggs until fluffy.  Add cottage cheese, sugar, vanilla and flour.

Pour  1/2 inch oil into a 10 -12 inch frying pan over medium-low heat.  When oil reaches about 300˙, scoop 1/4 cup of cheese mixture from the bowl, then gently drop it into hot oil.

Cook 3 or 4 pancakes at a time (do not crowd pan) loosening from bottom as needed, until undersides are golden brown, about 2 minutes.

Gently turn and cook until other side is golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes longer.

Transfer onto paper towels to drain briefly.  Keep warm.

Serve hot, with maple syrup and/or cinnamon sugar.
