- Preheat oven to 400ºF.
- Bake sweet potatoes for 30-40 minutes or until sweet potatoes are soft to touch. May bake sweet potatoes in microwave for quicker prep or bake sweet potatoes up to 2 days before.
- Remove sweet potatoes from oven and let set for 5-10 minutes.
- Remove skins and add cooked potatoes to a mixing bowl and mash until potatoes reach desired creaminess. May also use electric mixer.
- Fold in remaining ingredients, except for whole pecans. Transfer to small baking dish. Top with candied pecan halves and a dusting of cinnamon. Place back in oven for 5-10 minutes to heat through.
This recipe pairs nicely with a slow cooked pork roast, roast turkey or bacon wrapped chicken breasts. And they’re especially tasty and comforting during the fall and winter seasons!
