Ingredients

  • 4 cups low-fat cottage cheese
  • 2 cups all-purpose white flour
  • 6 tablespoons sugar, divided use
  • 1/16 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups liquid nondairy creamer
  • non-stick cooking spray
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon powdered sugar

Preparation

  1. To make filling place cottage cheese into a cheese cloth and twist into a ball.  Place in a colander, place colander into a mixing bowl, and refrigerate for safety. Allow liquid to drain for at least two hours. 
  2. Mix flour, 1 tablespoon sugar and salt.
  3. In a separate bowl beat eggs lightly and add the non-dairy creamer.
  4. Combine flour mixture and egg mixture and whisk until it is a smooth, thin batter. Allow batter to rest for an hour.
  5. Heat an 8" omelet pan and spray with non-stick cooking spray.
  6. Pour 1/4 cup batter onto hot pan and flip when bubbles appear in the center.
  7. Stack the pancakes onto a dinner plate and keep in a warm oven until ready to assemble.
  8. Mix drained cottage cheese with raisins, 5 tablespoons sugar and vanilla.
  9. Fill each palacsinta with 1/4 cup filling and roll it up. Dust with powdered sugar and serve.

Helpful hints

  • This is Anne’s family recipe, modified to be more heart-healthy. Traditional Palacsinta are prepared with a filling of cottage or pot cheese, sugar, and raisins; however, this is not the most renal-friendly filling due to the sodium in cottage cheese.  Other fillings such as apple, cheery, or blueberry pie filling are excellent alternatives. Look for no-sugar-added pie fillings if you have diabetes.
  • Compare brands and buy the lowest sodium cottage cheese without phosphate additives.
  • Alter the sugar to your taste.  Splenda® or other sugar substitute may be used to replace the sugar to reduce carbohydrate to 16 grams.
