5 sweet potatoes
1 tablespoon canola oil
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
2-3 tablespoons maple syrup
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup mini marshmallows
Heat oven to 350 and line the bottom with foil.
Rub each sweet potato with oil and prick with a fork 5 or 6 times.
Roast the potatoes on the oven rack for about 1 hour, until tender.
Allow to cool slightly.
Cut each potato lengthwise and carefully scrape the flesh in a large bowl.
Mash with the butter until smooth.
Stir in maple syrup and cinnamon.
Season with salt and cayenne pepper to taste.
Fill 8 sweet potato shells (discard the additional skins) with the mashed mixture and arrange on a baking sheet.
Press mini marshmallows onto the filled sweet potatoes.
Bake the potatoes for 10 to 15 minutes until heated through.
Turn on the broiler and broil the potatoes about 1 minute, until the marshmallows are toasted.
Serve immediately. (Serves 8)
