Oven-Baked Sweet Potato Fries

I posted a sweet potato fries recipe several months ago, but I found this one today and I like it better.

1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne)
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 large (about 1 1/2 pounds) sweet potatoes
1. Prepare the sweet potatoes: In a small bowl, combine cumin, salt, and pepper. Set aside. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Peel potatoes, cut each in half lengthwise, and cut each half into 6 wedges. In a large bowl, combine the cut potatoes, oil, and spice mixture. Toss until potatoes are evenly coated.

2. Bake the fries: On a baking sheet, arrange potatoes in a single layer and place on the middle shelf of the oven. Bake until edges are crisp and potatoes are cooked through -- about 30 minutes. Serve immediately.
