Mashed Sweet Potatoes

This is a pretty basic dish. But, I thought I'd put it up just in case anyone needed a Thanksgiving side. It makes enough for about 5-6 people.

Start with 3 pounds of sweet potatoes. Prick them with a fork & place on a foil-lined pan. Bake at 400 degrees for about 1 hour.
Take a half stick of unsalted butter out of the fridge to soften.

When the sweet potatoes are done, slice them in half & scoop the insides out into a the bowl of an electric mixer. Or, you can use a potato masher.

Pour in 2 tablespoons of maple syrup, a quarter cup of cream, and the softened butter.

Mix it all up,

and serve.
These can be made a couple of days in advance & reheated in the oven, or microwave.

Where did you get those cool measuring spoons? Although I guess they're really not spoons...

The little measuring cup? It's OXO. I think I got it at BB&B.
