Using the baking sheet:

3. Line the baking sheet with parchment paper.  Spray baking sheet lightly with cooking oil spray (so the latkes do not stick).  Scoop up a rounded tablespoon of the latke mixture and form it into a ball with your hands.  Flatten slightly to create a little patty.  Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.  Repeat with remaining mixture.  Bake for 25 minutes, or until golden on one side.  Flip the latkes gently.  Bake for another 15 minutes, or until golden brown.

Serve warm, topped with either tofu sour cream and chives or applesauce.
