Ingredients

4
large sweet potatoes
1 c
softened good brand of butter
1/2 c
ricotta cheese or soft cream cheese
1/2 c
chopped pecans
1/2 c
softened brown sugar
1 tsp
cinnamon, ground

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Boil water in large pot filled up about halfway. While water is boiling, peel and chop potatoes into 2 inch cubes. Drop slowly in pan and boil until they start to fall apart and you can stick a fork all the way through them (about 15 minutes or so for me but keep an eye on them) set aside when done.
2
In a mixing bowl, combine butter, cheese, brown sugar and cinnamon, mix in electric mixer until all ingredients are evenly distributed.
3
Add cooked potatoes to mixture, continue mixing on medium speed until mixture is a little whipped looking and smooth.
4
At this point you can decide to hand mix the chopped pecans throughout the mixture or layer them on top, whatever your preference.
5
Bake in glass casserole dish at 350 degrees for 45 minutes, serve warm, enjoy!
