Syrniki: A Russian Twist on Pancakes

So today I'm really excited to do something new....for the first time on Pretty Little Things I am having a guest blogger! My dear friend Sharon is somewhat of a foodie like me and she's always cooking up something new and posting her creations on social media for me to drool over. So why not share it with all my readers? Sharon....take it away!
Hey guys I’m Sharon! Steph asked me to share some of my favorite recipes that I grew up eating and what better way then to start with a authentic Russian breakfast pancake… Syrniki (pronounced Seer Ni Key). My background is Russian and wanted to bring a little Russian flare to Steph’s blog. Both my parents were born in the former Soviet Union and these authentic pancakes are a staple for any Russian household! They are easy to make, not many ingredients, and the best of all… DELICIOUS!!! So I hope to share many more home cooked recipes from my own kitchen to yours…

| What You'll Need |

1 small container of Fat Free small curd Cottege cheese  
(I used Wegmans brand).. this can be substituted with farmers cheese as well
1.5  cups of flour 
(can be adjusted based on consistency of batter. You don’t want them too gooey or too soupy)
4 eggs
2 tsp. of vanilla extract
1/2 cup of sugar (again can be adjusted per preference and can be substituted using sugar substitutes)
1 container of sour cream
Oil

| Directions |

Mix together cottage cheese, flour, eggs, sugar, and eggs until flour is no longer visible. Add vanilla extract and mix in. In a medium sized pan/skillet place 1/2 table spoon of oil and heat pan on medium. Scoop batter onto pan (about 2 tablespoon worths) and let each side cook for about 1-2 minutes until each side is light brown. Flip and repeat.

Serving suggestions:
Serve with sour cream
Makes about 10 pancakes :)
