Roasted Sweet Potato Wedges

This little snack is simple and easy, and super kid-friendly. My kids used to LOVE baby food sweet potatoes, but for some reason I've never been able to get them to eat them again. I tried to trick them and just tell them they were french fries, but they didn't buy it. They each ate three of them, which is a success in my book.....I, however, polished off the rest of the plate. These are great as a side to a main dish or just as a fun snack:)

You will need:
-8 tbsp (1 stick) unsalted butter
-1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
-2 or 3 sweet potatoes, scrubbed and cut lengthwise into wedges
-1 1/2 tsp salt
-1 tsp pepper

*Preheat oven to 400
*Melt butter in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Remove pan from heat and stir in cinnamon.
*Add sweet potato wedges and toss to combine
*Season with salt and pepper
*Spread potatoes on a foil lined baking sheet and roast them, stirring occasionally, for 20-25 minutes or until tender.
