PSA - in Israel "Gad" dairy makes wonderful Ricotta cheese - they have a few different versions. I know one is more firm, and one is spreadable.
Actually, does anyone know which would be best for this recipe? I'd love to try it.

Ramom, can you tell
Me how you get these to be some sort of uniform shape?

I use a tablespoon measuring spoon - one that is nice and round. And take a regular cutlery teaspoon, to help scoop and form the batter neatly and drop into the oil.

You can also use a small cookie scooper if that works better for you.

They are flour based with just a little cheese - like cream puffs. They taste like fluffy milchig donut balls - very delicious.

If it's a very wet cheese you can use 1 cup instead of 3/4 farmers+1/4 milk.

Interesting. My latkes have 6 eggs to 1 cup flour and 1/2 cup sugar. But they would taste better deep fried then pan fried anyway!

Ramom, about how Manny ppl would this serve? I'm thinking if I should double the recipe. And if I do, what size farmer cheese would I need?

You can buy a 1 lb package of farmers cheese - you'll have some left over.

That's sounds like a cheese batter (2 cups) with flour to bind it. But won't argue with you if you prefer latkes to donuts. 😊

no no not at all.

thanks for pointing it out.

I really wanted to see the difference. why its different.

I compared your one cup of flour and my 1 cup of flour without realising the cheese is much less in yours.

can I make and store in fridge ie serve cold? or does it have to made right before wanting to serve?

tks alot

Thanks for your reply. Sorry I'm not clear. Would one pound be enough if I want to double the recipe?
