Simple Cottage Cheese Pancakes

Rated as 4.33 out of 5 Stars

"These are an old favorite of mine. I use small-curd, low-fat cottage cheese. They come out thin and delicate, somewhere between a classic pancake and a crepe. A nice addition to a reduced-carb diet."

The batter was too thick so it didn't spread well in the pan. They were thicker than I expected. I only had large curd cottage cheese, and that wasn't the best thing to use. Next time I will add...
