Okay, I admit I didn't make the homemade applesauce! The latkes were great on their own. A very yummy recipe that came in handy when unexpected company came over for lunch!

Huge hit! The ricotta helps the mixture stay together, and gives it a nice smooth taste. My kids could not get enough of these!
