Spicy Honey Cinnamon Sweet Potato Fries


  • 2 large sweet potatoes, peeled
  • 1 Tbsp. cornstarch
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 Tbsp. vegetable oil
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • 2 Tbsp. salted butter
  • 1 Tbsp. AR's Hot Southern Honey
  • ½ tsp. vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. 
  2. Slice sweet potatoes into strips based on size of fries desired.
  3. In a medium mixing bowl, combine sweet potatoes, cornstarch, and cinnamon, tossing vigorously to coat evenly. 
  4. Transfer fries to a strainer to shake off and discard excess cornstarch and cinnamon. 
  5. On a rimmed, parchment-lined baking sheet, toss fries with oil. Separate fries so they do not overlap, and sprinkle with salt.
  6. Bake fries for 25 minutes, flipping halfway through.
  7. Turn off heat and crack oven door, allowing fries to cool inside oven for 10 minutes.
  8. While fries bake, combine butter, AR's Hot Southern Honey, and vanilla extract in small saucepan. Stir gently as mixture comes to a boil, then remove from heat.
  9. Transfer sweet potato fries to platter and drizzle the butter mixture over the warm fries, tossing to coat. 

Servings: 4-6
