It’s SO worth a visit… I promise! I’ll totally testify to the fact every recipe can be trusted because I was a happy little camper while taste-testing all this fabulousness 🙂
Today, I’m excited to share my Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes with y’all~ Heavenly! Oh my goodness.
Words can hardly express my love of sweet potatoes… they’ve been a favorite forever! Tomorrow I’m sharing another fabulous Sweet Potato recipe too 🙂
Options are always good, right?!
- 3 sweet potatoes (approx same size), scrubbed and washed
- 3 Tbsp butter, softened
- ¼ C pure maple syrup
- 2 Tbsp heavy cream
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- ¼ tsp nutmeg
- ⅛ tsp cloves
- salt and pepper to taste
- ¼ C candies pecans, chopped
- ¼ C toasted coconut flakes
- serve with additional maple syrup
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- Place sweet potatoes on baking sheet.
- Bake 40-50 minutes until fork inserts easily and soft to touch.
- Cut sweet potatoes in half length-wise and scoop out centers into a mixing bowl.
- Make sure to leave enough of an edge remaining in the skin to hold it's shape.
- I found it useful to scoop with a grapefruit spoon.
- Mash sweet potato in bowl with pastry cutter or fork.
- Add butter, maple syrup, cream, and spices; mix until smooth (or almost smooth)
- Adjust salt and pepper to your preference.
- Place mixture into large piping bag with a Wilson 1M open star tip and pipe a zigzag back and forth down the center of each sweet potato skin filling it in.
- Place back in oven to bake for 15 minutes or until warmed through.
- Top with pecans and coconut flakes.
- Serve with additional maple syrup, if desired.
