1 tb Sugar
8 oz Farmer cheese (1 cup)
3 tb Butter ;melted
1/2 ts Vanilla extract
1 tb Salt
1/3 c Matzo meal (1/3 to 1/2 cup)

Beat eggs and sugar for a few minutes until pale and
increased somewhat in volume. Beat in farmer cheese.
Add butter, vanilla extract and salt. Slowly stir in
enough matzo meal to make a batter that holds together.
In a heavy skillet, heat 1/4 inch of oil (or butter or
margarine). Drop the batter by tablespoonsful into the
hot oil. Flatten the pancakes slightly with the back
of the spoon. Fry for 3 to 4 minutes on the first
side; flip and fry the second side for about 3
minutes. Don't crowd the pan and add more fat to the
skillet as needed. Drain latkes on paper towels and
serve sprinkled with cinnamon. Pass sour cream and/or
jam separately. These can be served for lunch or supper
main course during Passover week, or as a dessert
after any meal. For a main course, precede it with a
big salad or a large steamed, braised artichoke.

Raymond Sokolov with recipes by Susan Friedland, which
was republished in 1993 by Wings Books, Random House
