BAKED SWEET POTATO GEMS
Featured Pinch Tips Video
- 2 medium sweet potatoes
- 2 oz. lite cream cheese, softened
- 2 tbs. lite sour cream
- 1 tbs. margarine
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 2 tbs. brown sugar
- 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1Wash sweet potatoes and dry. Grease with shortening. Place in the microwave and cook on high for about 12 minutes, turning once or until potatoes are soft.
2When potatoes have cooled slightly but are still hot cut a boat shaped slice from the top of each potato. Scoop pulp out leaving skins intact (I use measuring spoon) and put into medium bowl.
3Add all other ingredients and mash and mix with a fork. When pulp is smooth add it back to the potato skins. Pat tops with brown sugar and a sprinkling of cinnamon.
4Potatoes may be refrigerated and reheated in a foil lined pan at 425 for l0 to 15 minutes or until hot.
They can also be reheated in microwave.
