Garlicky Baked Potato Wedges

These fries looked soooo good but the directions were...well...interesting.  But I gave them a shot and Gray flipped out over them.  They were so tender on the inside and had a nice coating on the outside.  They are  little more work than regular oven fries but totally worth it.  This recipe is from The Purple Foodie. 

8 garlic cloves (minced)
6 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
3 russet potatoes
3 tbsp cornstarch
1 1/2 tsp coarse sea salt
1 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

Heat oven to 440.  Mix the garlic and olive oil together in a bowl and heat for 1 minute in the microwave.  Brush 5 tablespoons of olive oil onto a sheet pan.  Toss the potatoes in the olive oil and microwave for 2 minutes, stir and microwave for 2 more minutes. In a separate bowl whisk together the cornstarch, salt, pepper, garlic powder and cayanne. Sprinkle over the potatoes and coat well.  Layer the potatoes onto the pan and bake 30 to 40 minutes, flipping once.  Remove from oven and serve.
