Oven baking makes these french fries lower in fat and still crispy.
Remove potatoes and dry strips thoroughly. Place garlic powder, onion powder, salt, white pepper, allspice, and pepper flakes in a plastic bag. Toss potatoes in spice mixture. Place potatoes in nonstick shallow baking pan. Brush potatoes with oil. Cover with aluminum foil and place in 475° F oven for 15 minutes.
Remove foil and continue baking uncovered for an additional 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. Turn fries occasionally to brown on all sides.

I served this to my family and they loved it. I've always have trouble making homemade oven fries. They usually came out undercooked and burnt on the outside. I had no trouble at all with this recipe. The potatoes were tender and not exactly like french fries "crispy", more like roasted potatoes. However, I was pleased with the results.I think the ice water definitely made the difference. I am going to use this recipe often.
Doesn't the seasoning get brushed off if you brush the potatoes with oil after you put on the seasoning mixture? I would think that the seasonings would stick to the potatoes better if they were already oiled, or am I missing something?
