But enough about my problems.
Shavuot is a week away. Here is a wonderful alternative to blintzes. It can be made gluten free using gluten free flour. These pancakes are delicious either way.
Have a wonderful Shavuot. Chag Sameach!
Farmer Cheese Pancakes
A wonderful dish for Shavuot instead of blintzes or with them. Delicious and easy to make.
Makes about 30 pancakes
2 1/2 pounds farmer cheese (or cottage cheese well drained.)
2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon or lime juice
Grated zest of 2 lemons or limes
1/3 cup agave nectar or light brown sugar
3 large eggs lightly beaten
2/3 cups dried cherries
2 cups flour
1/4 cup grape seed oil or olive oil to cook
Sour cream for serving
Powdered sugar for serving.
Mix the cheese, lemon or lime juice, and zest together. Set aside for 5 minutes.
In a large bowl, beat the sugar and eggs together until light and fluffy. Mix in the cheese mixture and the cherries. Add 1 cup of the flour, slowly, stirring until a sticky dough forms.
Put the remaining cup of flour on a plate. Shape the dough into 30 - 2 inch rounds approximately 1/2 inch thick and lightly dredge in the flour.
Heat a nonstick fry pan over medium heat. Pour in about 1 tablespoon of the oil and distribute over the pan. Place pancakes in the pan and fry until golden brown on each side.
Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve with sour cream on the side.
