The Best Oven Fries

These are wonderful.  Crave-worthy!  There's a bit of effort involved, but the results are worth it!

Oven Fries

about 4 potatos
olive oil
kosher salt

-Peel the potatoes, and cut them into wedges.  Put them in a bowl, cover them with hot tap water, and let them sit for 10 minutes.
-Preheat the oven to 475.
-Coat a cookie sheet (with edges) with about 4 Tbsp olive oil and some salt and pepper.
-Drain the potatoes and spread on 3 layers of paper towels to dry.  Pat dry with more paper towels, then toss with 1 Tbsp oil.
-Spread the potatoes in a single layer on the cookie sheet, cover with foil, and bake 5 minutes.
-Remove the foil and bake 15-20 minutes or until spotted golden brown.  (Rotate the sheet in the oven after 10 minutes.)
-Turn all of the potatoes over, then bake until crisp, another 10 minutes or so.
-Transfer to a paper-towel lined baking sheet to drain, and season with salt and pepper.
