For the waffles:


  1. Make the creamy topping: Combine the cottage cheese, sugar, milk and vanilla in a food processor and puree until smooth. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  2. Make the compote: Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the pears and cook until the edges brown, about 2 minutes. Add the dried cherries, orange juice, sugar and 1/3 cup water. Bring to a simmer and cook until syrupy, about 5 minutes; set aside.
  3. Make the waffles: Preheat the oven to 250 degrees F. Whisk the flour, oats, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, ginger and salt in a large bowl. Whisk the milk, cottage cheese, eggs, vanilla and orange zest in another bowl (it will be lumpy), then whisk into the flour mixture until just combined. Whisk in the melted butter.
  4. Preheat a waffle iron and spray with cooking spray. Ladle in some batter (about 1/2 cup, depending on your waffle iron) and cook until crisp. Transfer to a baking sheet and keep warm in the oven; repeat with the remaining batter. Top the waffles with the creamy topping and compote.
