I've been trying out some of the new recipes in my collection, and this one was a huge hit! My neighbor said these are what you eat in heaven. I served them with a dab of blueberry all-fruit with a dollop of light sour cream on top. They were muy delicioso! Here's the recipe--it makes a LOT of pancakes, easily enough to feed six very hungry people. The next time I make it, I'm going to mix some orange marmalade and cream cheese, with a couple of drops of maraschino cherry juice, and use that to spread over the pancakes.

Ricotta Pancakes

6 eggs
1 15-oz. container ricotta
1-1/2 c. flour
1-1/2 c. sour cream
2 T sugar

1. Beat the eggs. Add remaining ingredients; mix well.

2. Drop by 1/4-cupfuls onto hot buttered griddle, spreading batter into 4-inch circles. Cook 2-3 minutes per side until light golden brown.

3. Serve with fresh fruit, powdered sugar, or maple syrup. Makes 6 servings.
