Ingredients

2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into even French fry shapes (slightly larger than 1/4-inch batons)

2 tablespoons olive oil 

1 tablespoon cornstarch 

1/2 teaspoon paprika 

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder 

1/8 teaspoon cayenne 

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Ranch Dressing, recipe follows

Ranch Dressing:

3 tablespoons buttermilk

2 tablespoons mayonnaise 

2 tablespoons sour cream 

1/2 teaspoon white wine vinegar

1/4 teaspoon onion powder 

1 clove garlic, minced 

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper 

Dash of hot sauce 

2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley 

1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill 

Directions

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.

Put the sweet potatoes in a large bowl. Add the olive oil and toss to coat. Stir together the cornstarch, paprika, garlic powder, cayenne, 3/4 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of black pepper in a small bowl. Sprinkle the spice mixture over the sweet potatoes and toss to coat.

Arrange the sweet potatoes on a baking sheet in a single layer, leaving as much space between the fries as possible. Bake, turning once about three-quarters of the way through, until the edges are browned and crispy, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool 5 minutes before serving.

Serve the warm fries with the Ranch Dressing.

Ranch Dressing:

Add the buttermilk, mayonnaise, sour cream, vinegar, onion powder, garlic, 1 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon black pepper and hot sauce to a food processor. Pulse to combine until smooth. Add the parsley and dill and pulse to incorporate, 4 to 5 times. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Pour into a serving bowl.
