    Omitted the sugar and added extra red pepper. Easy to make. Browned on the outside and was tender inside. Will use this recipe again.

    SO YUMMY! I made these on a whim tonight for dinner and I am so glad I did! The spice was just right combined with the carmelized outside and the sweet, soft inside. I will definitely make these again.

    This is a favorite. Everyone loves them. I usually cut them smaller as others suggested. Rather than use the cooking spray, I mix the spices with 1 tablespoon of olive or canola oil and toss with the potatos. I think the sugar gives them a carmelized flavor and makes them brown nicely. Using Reynolds Release aluminum foil helps with cleanup!

    These were really good. I halved the amount of potatoes but not the seasoning, and I thought they had great flavor. I would cut down on the sugar next time since like other reviewers noted, the potatoes are sweet on their own. I made a simple dip of mayo, sriracha, and smoked paprika, and it went nicely with the wedges.

    I love these fries! It is my new favorite way to eat sweet potatoes. I've made the recipe several times and most recently I used only a little bit of olive oil, sugar and Tony Chachere's (cajun seasoning). It was delicious!

    I made this for a casual dinner party and it was a big hit. It was so simple to make and very tasty.

    These were good though not particularly spicy. It's hard to get 1/4 t of red pepper equally distributed on all the potatoes though so maybe some wedges were and some weren't. Compared with another CL roasted sweet potato wedge recipe I tried, these seemed much better with the sugar. I cooked at 450 degrees as any roasted vegetables I've ever made at 500 degrees burn up before done - especially with sugar in the recipe. These were perfectly cooked in 20 minutes at 450. Like the other reviewer, I used half as many potatoes and same amount of seasoning. I used some olive oil instead of cooking spray. I agree they were kind of like a baked sweet potato but I like the wedge for a little different presentation. I will make these again.

    This was a decent, and easy, little sweet potato recipe, however, I didn't find them spicy. I doubled the amount of rub, and honestly, it just tasted like baked sweet potato wedges. That said, I love sweet potatoes, and don't require a lot for them to be tasty, but still, this seemed surprisingly non-spicy.
