These were a big hit at Sunday dinner. I served them with pork roast.
6 medium sweet potatoes (about 8 oz. each)
1/2 c butter, cubed
1/4 c packed brown sugar
1 medium apple chopped small
1/4 c chopped pecans
Scrub and pierce potatoes. Place on foil lined baking pan. Bake at 400 deg for 45-60 minutes until tender.
When cool, cut a thin slice form each potato, discard.
Scoop out pulp, leaving 1/4 inch thick shells, and put in large bowl.
Mash with butter, brown sugar. Fold in apples and pecans.
(Next time I will add a little cinnamon)
Spoon into potato shells. Return to baking pan. Bake 15-20 mins or until heated through.
I made these in the afternoon and then they were already to pop in the oven. They did take a little longer than 20 mins since they had cooled considerably.
