  1. In a medium bowl, beat the cottage cheese and egg together. Stir in the half-and-half, flour, baking powder, salt, sugar and nutmeg. Mix until just combined.
  2. Fill a deep pot to the 2-inch mark with oil. Heat to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Drop batter by rounded tablespoons into the hot oil. Fry until golden brown on all sides, about 3 to 4 minutes. Drain on paper towels and sprinkle with confectioners' sugar. Serve hot!


  • Editor's Note
  • We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. The exact amount will vary depending on cooking time and temperature, ingredient density, and the specific type of oil used.

OM Gosh but these are good... fluffy little balls of heaven! I didn't have 1/2 & 1/2 so I used milk, otherwise I followed the recipe exactly. I served them with seedless raspberry jam. I like...

These were very tasty! The cottage cheese melts to make a custardy moist interior that contrast with the crisp outside. No one would be able to guess the "secret" ingredient. We loved the fla...

I made these last Chanukah and found they were fantastic. I made them for a friend who is really picky and he just kept going on and on about how good they were!


Made these to go with dinner tonight. I thought it would be a great way to get my kids to try cottage cheese. No can do, they wouldn't eat them! I don't know if they turned out right though. ...

Outstanding! I made an orange sauce to dip these in and they were so good! Great quick breakfast!
