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.
