Thanksgiving Ideas: San Marin Cookies and White Sweet Potato Wedges by Jesse Bluma

Thanksgiving Ideas:  San Marin Cookies and Sweet Potatoes

For dessert I made San Marin cookiesbaked with deep, intense chocolate. 

For lunch lunch I made white sweet potato wedges.  

  Before you go thinking white sweet potatoes are South American or Central American, these are all American for Thanksgiving.  Looking for a new twist on an old favorite?  Or maybe just a new favorite?  White sweet potatoes are less sweet than the orange sweet potatoes.
These "sweet" potatoes are a bit more like a white baking potato.

White Sweet Potato Wedges

- Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit (218 degrees Celsius).

- Wash the white sweet potatoes to remove dirt and soil.

- Cut white sweet potatoes on a cutting board into thick wedges. (A proper, sharp knife is important.  You may wish to cut the potato in half and then into wedges, as this makes for easier handling.)

- Toss with 1 tablespoon olive oil.

- Peel and mince 3 garlic cloves; toss with wedges.

- Sea salt and pepper to taste.

- Place on baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

- Bake for 25 minutes (oven times will vary with size of wedges).

Serve warm.
