Ricotta Latkes (Ricotta Pancakes)

Strawberry Sauce
I know I just posted a Ricotta Pancake recipe, but the other day, I had some more ricotta to use up and came across this recipe from Eating Etc's blog that I had wanted to make a few years ago and never got around to.  The original recipe calls for cottage cheese, but I subbed ricotta very successfully.  I also used applesauce for half of the butter.  These were so delish and eggy, but not too eggy.  The whole family liked them.  We enjoyed them with my Strawberry-Nectarine Freezer Jam
