In a small bowl, beat the egg with a whisk until creamy.
Push the cottage cheese through a wire strainer into the egg in the bowl. Mix well.
Add the oil and flour. Mix well.
Lightly oil a skillet and place over low heat. When the skillet is hot, spoon the batter into the skillet making four pancakes. Flatten slightly with the back of a spoon. Cook 2-minutes on each side, or until lightly browned.
Serve with applesauce, apple butter or your favorite whole fruit jam.
