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

  • 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.

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

Yummers! Even hubby gave this 5 and he's not usually a fan of nuts in his dinner or of sweet side dishes. I reserved some of the nuts and sprinkled them on top of the potatoes before the 2nd bake. Soooo good! Read More

My husband doesn t care for sweet potatoes so I was surprised when he not only tried it but ate the whole thing and rated it 5 star. This was perfect for us tasty and not too sweet. I made it exactly as written and wouldn't make any adjustments. Read More

I had to make some changes because I didn't have cream cheese or brown sugar; however I did have marshmallows and a brown raw sugar. And that worked out for me since I am watching my diet. So I made those changes and the potatoes came out deliciously! 5 out of 5! Read More

These were good. Next time though I would add more brown sugar and some butter. I didn't put the filling back in the skins but served the filling in ramekins--much easier. Read More
