  • olive oil nonstick cooking spray
  1. Place a large baking sheet in the oven, and preheat oven to 450 degrees.

  6. Using the back of the spoon to flatten and spread each mound into a circle about 3 inches wide.
  7. Carefully (remember, it's hot!) return pan to the oven and bake for 8 minutes.
  8. Using oven mitts, carefully remove sheet and coat the top of the latkes with another 3-second spray of olive oil spray. Gently flip with a spatula.
  9. Return to the oven and bake for approximately 10 minutes, until both sides of latkes are crispy. Serve with sour cream topped with scallions and/or applesauce topped with cinnamon!
