The word chremslach is applied to any number of very different, usually fried, matzo meal pancakes. There are also recipes called chremsle, vvemzle, or chremslach that are croquettes with almonds and raisins. These cottage cheese pancakes are wonderful for a midweek Passover dairy breakfast, lunch, or dinner. I like them topped with sour cream, but if you have a sweet tooth, try applesauce, marmalade, strawberry jam, or other preserves, or a sprinkling of sugar. Or top them with sour cream and strawberries macerated with some sugar so they exude their juices and form a sauce.–Arthur Schwartz
