"I love candied yams at the holidays, but for everyday dinners, I wanted to create a simple and quick recipe that would have all of the delicious holiday flavor, but would take a fraction of the time and effort. These baked sweet potatoes are topped with a scrumptious butter that has been sweetened with brown sugar and has just a hint of cinnamon spice. Now you can enjoy the taste of the holidays any time of the year!"
4 large sweet potatoes or yams, washed and dried well
1/4 cup or 4 Tablespoons of butter, softened
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
In a 400 degree oven, bake sweet potatoes on a cookie sheet for approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes to 1 hour and 30 minutes, or until tender. While potatoes are baking, prepare Cinnamon Brown Sugar Butter by mixing softened butter, brown sugar and cinnamon and stirring until completely combined; set aside. When sweet potatoes are done baking, split each potato lengthwise with a knife. Divide butter mixture equally and spoon onto sweet potatoes. ENJOY!
