Twice-Baked Sweet Potatoes

5 sweet potatoes

1 tablespoon canola oil

4 tablespoons unsalted butter

2-3 tablespoons maple syrup

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

kosher salt

cayenne pepper

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)
