These were tasty but I do have to agree with Robograndma (a cook I trust very much) and say as the recipe states these fries are very soggy. I ended up letting them cook until tender then turned up the oven to 400 and still wasnt getting anywhere. I ended up having to broil them on high stir and keep a close eye on them to get them to crisp up. They have a very good flavor the cooking method is just a bit off. Read More

These tasted yummy but as a novice cooker I struggled a bit and in the end the boyfriend was not a fan. First of all I wasn't sure if I was supposed to peel them or not (I did) and who knew raw sweet potatoes were so hard to slice! I popped them in the microwave for a 1.5 minutes and that made them managable to slice. Also the recipe didn't say to spray the sheet first and being the novice chef that I am I didn't. I will next time because they stuck. The kitchen smelled great and the fries were tasty but if its all the same I'll just stick to a baked sweet potato. Read More

We normally make a chili seasoned baked fry but my 2-yr old won't eat spicy food. He LOVES these! Instead of brown sugar, I added a little vanilla extract into the olive oil. Also- I didn't have coriander. I added a little cumin and pumpkin pie spice to the recipe. Yum! If you make a little extra, these are also delicious to take from the fridge as a snack. Many times, I find the potatoes don't cook enough from the oven alone (and they're hard to cut up uncooked), so I microwave them until soft, then cut up. I put in oven on 400 until crispy. Read More

Thumbs up! I omitted the cardamom & corriander added 1/4 tsp nutmeg and used Splenda brown sugar. After the 30 min cooking time the recipe recommended they weren't done so I increased the temp to 400 for about 15 min. The brown sugar & spices carmelized and were beyond yummy! Update 12-04-10 -- I made these again tonight & instead of using the olive oil I used Pam Olive Oil Cooking Spray. They were still delicious & lower in fat & calories. They also were a little crisper than when I made them before. Best yet! Read More

Maybe I did somthing wrong but my fries did not come out chrisp. I thought they were going to be chrisp like fries. The family loved them just the same and I did also. I did leave out the brown suger MIL is a diabetic I was worried about the sugers in the sweet potatoes without adding more to it. As I said the family loved these twin 21 yr old sons that never agree both said it's a do-again maybe even for holiday dinner. So I gave this 4 stars but not the 5 because I just can't get past the no chrisp factor. Read More

Love these. The first day after serving these I got a text midday from my hubby thanking me for dinner the night before. (It wasn't my regular BBQ chicken or steamed broccoli that was on his mind.) They are not crisp fries but about the same as any other oven baked fries. I made a few changes. I left out the sugar since I served them with a vanilla maple icing drizzle. I left the peels on and that seemed to make many of the fries more firm. I skipped the cold water and put all the ingredients in a plastic bag to coat and then sit for about 30 minutes prior to baking. That gave a nice uniform coating of spice and oil. I set my oven to 400 degrees F and baked for 40 minutes turning them at 20 minutes. Finally I put them under the broiler for a bit. Watch that step carefully. They go from perfect to burnt in a second. Read More

I made these according to Suz's version but instead of rolling them in oil I sprayed olive oil Pam on the bottom and then laid on the cut fries then I sprayed with Pam again sprinkled on the spices and vanilla instead of sugar. Baking them for about 25 minutes at 400 made them semi crispy. Easy and good for you too! Read More

I didn't have cardomom so I substituted nutmeg. I love the flavor & don't mind that they aren't crisp. My kids devour these everytime I make them! Read More

Good spice suggestions Carolyn! To the folks looking for crispier fries you can soak the cut sweet potatoes in a salt water bath then pat dry. This will draw out much of the water. Also pre heat the baking sheet. With that being said I prefer plumper softer sweet potato fries. Good job Carolyn! Read More
