  • 2 sweet potatoes, scrubbed and pierced several times with a fork

  • ¼ cup cream cheese, softened

  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar

  • 2 tablespoons chopped pecans

  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  2. Bake sweet potatoes in the preheated oven until tender, about 1 hour and 15 minutes. Set aside until cool enough to handle.

  3. Cut a thin lengthwise slice from the top of each sweet potato and discard slice. Scoop pulp from sweet potatoes, leaving thin shells. Place pulp into a bowl and mash with cream cheese. Stir brown sugar, pecans, and cinnamon into mixture and fill sweet potato shells with pulp. Place filled sweet potatoes onto a baking sheet.

  4. Bake until sweet potatoes are heated through, 15 to 20 minutes.
