Sea Foam Pancakes

A good old Magidow recipe, posted here for posterity so I don't have to search around my computer for the recipe every time I need it:

3 egg yolks
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup cold water
3/4 cup matzo meal
3 egg whites, stiffly beaten
fat for deep frying

Beat together the egg yolks, salt, water. Stir in the matzo meal and fold in the egg whites. Heat the oil to 375 and drop the batter into it by the tablespoon. Fry until browned on both sides. Drain. Top with cinnamon sugar or maple syrup. Serves 3-4 very small people who aren't very hungry.*

* this recipe does not "double" well. It is best to make it twice (in two different bowls) to make twice as many.
