DIRECTIONS

  • Peel sweet potatoes (or leave the skins on if you'd like).
  • Cut the potatoes in 3/8" fries (like the size you get at a carnival is how it was explained to me).
  • Place fries in a glass bowl and cover with water. Let soak for a half hour or more (it's not necessary but it makes a crispier fry).
  • Preheat oven to 425.
  • Add cornstarch to a large, reclosable, plastic bag.
  • Add fries to the bag, close and shake until they are coated with cornstarch. You may have to do that more than once depending on your bag size.
  • Lay the fries out on a baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil.
  • Toss fries gently with your hands until they are all well covered in oil but try not to knock too much cornstarch off.
  • Spread the fries out in a single layer on the baking sheet, making sure not to crowd if you want them to get crispy.
  • Place in oven and bake for 15 minutes or until they reach your desired crispiness.
  • Dust with powdered sugar and serve with maple syrup for dipping, if desired.
