Mix together the cottage cheese and the white pepper. Let stand for 15 minutes. Place the cheese in toweling or cheesecloth and carefully squeeze as much moisture from it as possible. Rub the dry cheese through a sieve. In a mixing bowl combine the cheese, flour, egg yolks, sugar and salt. Knead together well and roll into 3" (7 1/2 cm) thick tubes. Refrigerate for about 1 hour and then slice the rolls into 2 1/2 cm. slices. In a skillet melt 2 Tbsp. of the butter and in this fry the slices until golden brown on both sides, adding butter only if the skillet becomes dry. Serve hot with the sour cream. (May be served as an appetizer or a dessert).
