    This recipe apeared in the Milwaukee Journal on Dec.3.1972
    The recipe was by Jacob Cohen the proclaimed master of "Latkes" potatoe pancakes. He would make these for Hannukah . He had two secrets for the success of the crisp wonders.
    #1 use fine dry bread crumbs instead of flour.
    #2 keep them warm in a low oven standing them on edge, in paper towel lined loaf pans.
    I have never again used any other recipe!

    Potato Pancakes/Latkes a la Cohen
    4 med. Idaho potatoes
    1 Bermuda onion
    3 eggs
    1 clove garlic, minced
    1/2 c dry bread crumbs, or more
    1/2 tsp baking powder
    1 tsp salt
    fresh ground pepper to taste
    1/4 tsp Paprika
    Cooking oil
    Apple sauce or sour cream
    Peel the potatoes (I don't). and cut into chunks. Peel the onion and cut into chunks. If you have a processor Put this through a course shredding disk, or you can also just pulse until a coarse consistency. Or you can use a blendeer, and drop one egg into the blender first. Then add some onion and potatoes. Do this 3 times. Empy contents into a large bowl, and drain off extra liquid. Now strir in all the rest of the ingredients.
    If you are up to it taste the raw batter, to see if there is enough salt. Or taste the first pancake! icon_smile.gif I preferr that. LOL The batter should be thick enough to hold it's shape, and not run of the spoon. Add more bread crumbs if you need to.
    Pour enough cooking oil into a large skillet. About 1/8" deep.
    When the oil is hot. 350 Degrees. Drop the batter in by heaping Tablespoons and flatten out a bit. Brown on one side and flip over. They should be crusty brown on the outside and soft,but well done on the inside. This makes about 20 pankakes. Usually I allow 3-4 per peron. If you own an Electric Skillet, it is perfect for this, because you can keep the oil at the same Temp. Serve them with Apple Sauce or Sour Creme. Enjoy!!
    Now I am salivating for some, and will have to go and buy Idaho Potatoes. icon_smile.gif Koechin/Ingrid
