6 small baking potatoes (4 to 5 in. long)
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1/4 teaspoon paprika
pinch of pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Scrub potatoes, pat dry, and rub skins
lightly with a little of the butter. Pierce potatoes in several places
with a fork. Bake potatoes until tender when pierced (45 minutes to 1
hour). When cool enough to handle, cut in halves lengthwise and scoop
out potato, leaving a thin shell about 1/8 inch thick. Reserve potato
for other dishes. Place skins on a baking sheet. Melt butter in a
small pan with paprika and white pepper. Stir. Brush insides of potato
skins with butter mixture. Bake potato skins until crisp and golden
(18 to 20 minutes).

Extras: For variety, try adding grated Cheddar cheese, crumbled bacon,
green onion, or chives.)

Yield: Serves 6
