In keeping with the tradition of eating dairy food for Hanukkah, Chumie Vann shared this treat with us.
Makes about 15 medium-sized latkes.

1 pound farmer’s cheese
1 cup flour
4 eggs
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla sugar
1 pinch salt
Mix all ingredients together and fry in 2/3 cup of hot oil until golden brown. Do not over-fry or they will be too dry.

Optional Additions:
A handful of fresh chopped dill – gives it pretty color and a touch of gourmet flavor
A handful of raisins
A handful of chopped walnuts

Optional Topping:
Smoked salmon with chive garnish

    • farmer’s cheese is a very dry cottage cheese. suggest you drain dry cottage cheese to get even more liquid out. If too liquidy, just add a little more flour.
