Yummy and easy-even the kids liked it, and they usually won't touch sweet potatoes. I stuck to the recipe, and everything went well.

Good Recipe! I've never had sweet potato fries before but have friends who rave about them, so I decided to try it. I used this recipe as a base and since i didn't have maple sugar on hand I added a few other ingredients based on my friends suggestions. I peeled the skin of the potatoes, then I cut the fries in 1/2" thick french fry slices. I seasoned the fries in a dry rub of cayenne pepper, salt, paprika, cinnamon, brown sugar, and olive oil. I baked them on a lighly oiled baking sheet and sprinkled a bit of brown sugar on them during the last 5 minutes. These were very tasty and good. I will definitely be making them again. I can only imagine how the maple syrup would have tasted. I'm sure it would have really added a nice nutty caramel flavor to these wondrous treats.
