Versatile enough for a sweet pie or a savory dip, cottage cheese lends creaminess without weighing you down.
  • 1/3 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 7 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 1/2 cups whole-milk cottage cheese
  • 3 large eggs
  • 6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • Preheat oven to 200ºF.
  • Cook onion, 1/8 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper in 2 tablespoons butter in a small heavy skillet over moderately low heat, stirring occasionally, until golden brown, about 12 minutes. Transfer to a bowl, then add cottage cheese, eggs, flour, 1/4 cup butter, remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt, and remaining 1/8 teaspoon pepper and whisk until combined.
  • Brush a 12-inch nonstick skillet with some of remaining butter and heat over moderate heat until hot but not smoking. Working in batches of 5, scoop 1/8-cup measures of batter into skillet and cook until undersides are golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes. Flip and cook until undersides are golden brown and pancakes are cooked through, 1 to 2 minutes more. Transfer to a baking sheet and keep warm in oven. Brush skillet with butter between batches if necessary.
