Sweet Potato Fries For Fall

Prep: 5 minutes
Cook: 15 minutes
Yield: 6 servings

2 sweet potatoes, peeled
butter flavored cooking spray

Slice the sweet potatoes into 1/4 inch or thinner slices. Use pumpkin and leaf cookie cutters to cut shapes from the slices. Place in a single layer on a baking sheet and coat with cooking spray.

Bake at 375 for 15-20 minutes or until tender.

Tips and Tricks
I used the Pampered Chef Creative Cutters set (see sidebar) to make these fall themed fries, but you could use any cutters you have. Make them for every holiday! I also diced up the remaining potato, coated and baked it, and it made perfect finger food for my baby. Coat with olive oil if you don't have cooking spray, but be sure to check them often, because olive oil has a low smoking point.
How Kids Can Help
Cut shapes from slices. Stir to coat.
