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?!
Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes
- 3 sweet potatoes, approx same size, scrubbed and washed
- 3 Tbsp butter, softened
- 1/4 C pure maple syrup
- 2 Tbsp heavy cream
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- 1/8 tsp cloves
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1/4 C candies pecans, chopped
- 1/4 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.
I hope you’re being inspired by my creative blog friends and I with all kinds of ideas for your Thanksgiving and Holiday gatherings~ we sure had fun making and sharing some of our family favorite recipes at Blogger Thanksgiving 2014.
Love and Peace~
Not only were these beautiful, they were delicious! That toasted coconut on the top was such a yummy addition!
Thank you Kara… everything was SO wonderful! What a fun day 🙂 xoxo~ Ruthie

Just glancing at the list of ingredients with the maple syrup is making my mouth water. These look delicious!
Oh my goodness… they are heavenly! A must-try for sure 🙂 Happy Holiday’s and may lots of delicious-ness pour out from your kitchen. xoxo~ Ruthie
Should there not be a second baking with the filling?
Thank you for reminding me… I noticed that too and forgot to go and fix it! After you place the filling back in the shells bake for an additional 15 minutes or until warmed through, then add toppings and serve! These were a total hit at our Thanksgiving~ I’d eat them everyday if I could 🙂 xoxo~ Ruthie
