Sweet Potato Fries with a Maple-Marshmallow Dip


       I have a secret to tell you....come closer. I'm completely addicted to Sweet Potato
   fries. This is a true story. I have no self control when they are on the menu at any one
   of my favorite restaurants. Hey, I figure they are better for you than regular fries, right?
   This was my first attempt at making home-made ones and I wonder what took me so
   long? They are great and the sweet dip makes it fun. You can use your favorite dip.

                                            Sweet Potato Fries with a Maple-Marshmallow Dip

     5 sweet potatoes, cut into 1/4 inch pieces
     olive oil
     salt and pepper
     cinnamon - optional

     Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

     Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a bowl coat sweet potatoes with oil.
     Season with salt and pepper. Spread sweet potatoes on baking sheet and do not over-
     crowd or they will get soggy. Keep them in a single layer. Bake until golden. Flip
     them occasionally during baking. For the dip. I used 1/2 cup marshmallow ice cream
     topping mixed with 1 tablespoon maple syrup.
