this is how you make the best french fries

this is how you make the best french fries if you want them to be thin and crispy and baked and still have their skin on. i have another recipe if you want them to be skinless wedges. more on that later.


  • 2-3 large potatoes
  • 3-4 T. olive oil
  • 2 t. cornstarch
  • salt

Other things you need:

  • parchment paper


  1. Preheat oven to 425. Cut your potatoes into long slices, and then cut those slices into sticks. mine are usually about 1/3 to 1/2 inch thick and deep.
  2. Put them in a plastic bag and sprinkle the cornstarch in there. The cornstarch will help them get brown and crispy.
  3. Shake the cornstarch all around until it’s not clumpy.
  4. Drizzle the oil in the bag and shake.
  5. Pull the fries out (don’t’ dump them. actually pull them out so that the excess oil is left in the bag and not on your baking sheet)
  6. Put them in a single layer on the baking sheet. This is important. The part of the potato that’s touching the parchment/baking sheet will brown, so you want all of the pieces to be laying on the baking sheet.
  7. Sprinkle with salt.
  8. Bake 18-30 minutes or until the bottoms begin to brown.
  9. Flip fries over and bake another 15-20 minutes or until browned all over.
