Skinny Pancakes

This is a family recipe.  I have many a memory attached to these so yummy "crepes":  standing at the stove minding all the pans at once, watching Dad roll his precisely (he folds his in half before he rolls), wondering if having yet another pancake is a good idea . . .

1 cup cottage cheese
4 eggs
1/2 cup flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup milk
2 T oil
1/2 tsp vanilla

In a hot pan (or three) pour a dollop of the batter, then tip the pan to spread it out into a thin layer (like a crepe).  Flip when all the bubbles have popped and the edges are turning brown.  The second side needs very little time so watch carefully.

You can eat these with jam or margarine, just spread a thin layer over the pancake, then roll into a cigar.  Eat by cutting off half an inch at a time.

I adore these pancakes.  They taste absolutely fabulous.  I don't usually add anything to them, just roll and inhale.
