Maple Topped Sweet Potato Skins
6 medium sweet potatoes
1/2 c. cream cheese, softened
1/4 c. sour cream (I use greek yogurt instead of sour cream)
2 t. cinnamon, divided
2 t. nutmeg, divided
2 t. ground ginger, divided
2 c. chopped walnuts or pecans (I do 1/2 with walnuts and 1/2 with pecans)
3T. butter, softened
1/4 c. brown sugar, packed
Garnish: warm maple syrup, additional nuts
Pierce potatoes with a fork. Bake at 400 degrees or microwave on high setting until tender: cool.
Slice each potato in half lengthwise: scoop out baked insides, keeping skins intact. Place potato skins on an ungreased baking sheet. Mash baked potato insides in a bowl until smooth: add cream cheese, sour cream(yogurt) and one teaspoon each of spices. Mix well and spoon into potato skins. In a bowl, mix nuts, butter, brown sugar and remaining spices: Sprinkle over top. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes. Drizzle with warm maple syrup: garnish as desired. Makes one doz.
I do not have the nutritional value on these but one could not do you any harm. Enjoy!
