The Best Oven Fries…Ever

IMG_4542

Jonesing for french fries this weekend, I thought the better of it and waited to make oven fries when it got a bit cooler out.  Searching the internet for a new recipe, I came across the Cook’s Illustrated version of how to make oven fries.  I like reading Cook’s Illustrated, especially when they attempt to make something simple sublime.  I pretty much used the above recipe straight, but used less oil (and just vegetable oil because that’s what’s in our cupboard) since I was using silpat sheets.  They came out super crispy on the outside; steamy and tender on the inside.  Truly, the best oven fries ever.
