Cheese Pancakes with Walnuts and Dried Figs
1 lb tvorog (or dry small curd farmers’ cheese, or ricotta)
0.5 cup flour
3 tbsp sugar
1/4 lb dried figs (or raisins)
2/3 cup peeled ground walnuts
2/3 cup sour cream
4 tbsp butter or margarine
Salt on taste
Blend tvorog until it is of an even consistency.
Soak dried figs for 1 hour, then drain, and cut them into small pieces.
Separate the egg yolks and egg whites.
Stir tvorog, 1/4 cup flour, egg yolks, ground walnuts, salt, and dried figs together.
Make small oval pancakes by getting a tablespoonful with a full top, covering with another tablespoon, and getting rid of the extra on the sides. Then, drop it into the rest of the flour, and fry with butter for 2 minutes per side.
Then, place in an oven pre-heated to 380 F (170 C) for 5 – 7 minutes.
Serve hot with sour cream.
