evenly shaped Russet baking potatoes
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Pierce potatoes deeply with sharp fork to allow steam to escape as they bake, and this helps to make them fluffy. Place them, not touching, on middle oven rack and bake 1 hour. Score tops with X's, then pinch gently to force flesh up. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, and then dollop on butter or sour cream.
