Potato-Apple-Cinnamon Latkes--Perfect for Dessert or for Brunch

Potato-Apple-Cinnamon Latkes P Yield: 36 latkes
A cross between my potato-apple galette and potato latkes, I see this as a dessert latke but it would also be yummy as a side dish with meat or chicken. Cinnamon and apple are a standard combination and well- fried with potato- it’s perfect.
Prep time: 20 min.  Frying time:  about 45 minutes
2 eggs
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 pound white potatoes
1 pound sweet apples
2 tablespoons flour
2 cups + vegetable oil
½ cup white sugar for sprinkling
Electric food processor
Mixing bowl
Wooden spoon
Cookie sheets lined with paper towels
  1. Beat eggs together with cinnamon in mixing bowl.
  2. Peel  and quarter apples, Remove cores. Peel and rinse potatoes.
  3. Insert shredding disk into processor and shred apples and potatoes. Add them to egg mixture. Sprinkle with flour.
  4. Pour 1/2 inch vegetable oil in skillet and heat until very hot. Drop spoonfuls of latkes mixture into oil with wooden spoon, Flatten the top of latkes with back of spoon. Fry until edges start to brown and then flip latkes to other side and fry until browned.  Undercook latkes a little if you plan to reheat them at another time. Otherwise, drain them on paper towels and then arrange them on platter and serve hot. Sprinkle with sugar right before serving.
