Excellent and simple. I sprinkled chili powder on them and tossed with olive oil. Use parchment paper in your rimmed baking sheet to avoid burning.

I always leave out the lemon juice and bake them on the lowest rack on a single baking sheet. They do come out crispy enough for me!

About those sweet potato fries that didn't crisp up... Try cutting the recipe in 1/2 and spread the sweet potatoes on one baking sheet (instead of two). Then place that sheet on the lowest rack in the oven. I have found that oven "frying" potatoes on the lowest rack gets the outsides of the potatoes nice and crisp.

I love sweet potato fries. I just don't like the oil used in a fried recipe. I followed this recipe exactly and the fries never became crisp. After cooking for at least 1/2 hour longer, they were still mushy. I guess I'll have to go back to my fried receipe.
