Peel and cut your potatoes into thin strips.
Soak in cold water for 30 to 60 minutes prior to cooking.
Drain and pat dry.
Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.
You can either line cookie sheets with parchment, or don't use parchment but spray pans generously with non stick spray.
In a bowl combine the oil and spices with the potatoes, and toss till evenly coated.
Lay the fries on the baking sheet in a single layer.
Cook for about 10 to 15 minutes, checking them often depending how thin you sliced them.
Flip them all over and cook for another 5 to 10 minutes depending on how you like yours. I like mine quite crisp and dark, so start keeping an eye early. They can go from golden to overcooked very quickly.
Remove from oven and transfer to a plate lined with paper towels to absorb any extra oil. Pat them to remove excess.
You can sprinkle with a touch of salt if you like. With the spices it's really not needed though.
Serve with a big old smile, and perhaps some ketchup!
