Apple Blintz Pancakes

  • 1 cup pancake mix
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup cottage cheese or ricotta cheese
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 3/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup applesauce
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon (optional)

Place the pancake mix in a large bowl. In another bowl, whisk together the egg, cottage cheese, milk, oil, and ¼ cup of the sour cream. Stir the wet ingredients into the pancake mix and whisk just to combine. Let the batter rest according to the pancake-mix label directions (or for 5 minutes if you make your own mix). Place a nonstick griddle or skillet coated with oil, butter, or cooking spray over medium-high heat. Spoon or pour about 1/3 cup of batter for each pancake onto the griddle. Turn when bubbles rise to the surface and the edges look cooked. Repeat with the remaining batter. Before serving, spoon 1 tablespoon of the applesauce onto one half of each pancake; fold in half and top with some of the remaining sour cream. Sprinkle with cinnamon (if desired).

Yield: Makes 10 to 12 pancakes
