Soft and Fluffy Cheese Pancakes with Cranberry Applesauce

These pancakes are a bit more work than regular ones so I only make them on special occasions but they are worth the work!

3 large eggs, separated and at room temp
1/2 cup regular or GF flour mix
2 tsp. baking powder (1 tsp. if reg. flour)
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup ricotta or cottage cheese
1/3 c milk
2 tbls. butter melted and cooled
2 tbls. sugar
1 1/2 cups applesauce
3/4 cup whole berry cranberry sauce

In blender or food processor, place the egg yolks, flour, baking powder, salt, cheese, milk and butter. Whirl until smooth scaping sides as needed. In a medium bowl, beat egg yolks until foamy, beat in sugar until peaks form. Fold cheese mixture into wgg whites. Heat griddle. In a small bowl cobine the applesauce and cranberry sauce. Pour 1/4 cup batter on lightly greased griddle, cook until bubbles form and then turn, cooking until brown. Serve with sauce. I usually serve these with bacon.
