  4. Place on cookie sheet and roast for 20 to 25 minutes.

I'd recommend keeping them in the oven for at least 35-40 minutes. Open the foil wrap after 20 mins so they catch a little "tan") I buttered them in olive oil and garlic salt. Worked out GREAT. Will not waste bottled water to boil corn ever again.

Sprinkle a little powdered ranch on them along with the butter before wrapping them up for a tasty surprise! :)

Much better than water-logged cobs boiled in water. Do remember to place a baking sheet underneath to catch any butter that may seep through the foil. Thanks for sharing a great technique! :)
