  1. Mix together cottage cheese, potato flakes, eggs, salt, sugar, lemon rind, raisins and flour to form a smooth dough, adding a little more flour if dough is too sticky. Pat the dough out on a floured surface to form a rectangle 9x3 inches.
  2. Cut into 1 1/2-inch squares.
  3. Melt margarine in frying pan over medium heat.
  4. Fry squares on both sides until browned, about 1 to 2 minutes on each side.
  5. Serve hot with confectioners' sugar, syrup or preserves.

I used small curd cottage cheese & the dough seemed a bit lumpy but the final product was stellar. It didn't say how much flour so I added a fistful or so but the dough was still quite loose so i dumped in a bit more potato. It made a lovely breakfast!! DH liked them too. The kids missed out, lol. xoxo to you!
