Ukrainian Cottage Cheese Patties

2 c cottage cheese
2 eggs
pinch salt
1/2 c all purpose flour
2-3 tbsp butter
a bowl of sour cream

Force the cheese through a sieve with a wooden spoon. Beat in the eggs, salt and about 6 tbsp flour. With wet hands, shape the cheese mixture into small patties and dip into remaining flour to dust. Fry them in hot butter until browned on both sides (do not crowd the pan, cook in batches). Serve hot with sour cream.
