Dolloped Sweet Potatoes Recipe

Our Test Kitchen used a little microwave magic to turn sweet potatoes into a speedy and special side dish for hectic holiday feasts. Brown sugar and pumpkin pie spice flavor the simple but rich cream-cheese topping.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 15 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 4 small sweet potatoes
  • 1 package (3 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 tablespoon butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice


  • 1. Scrub and pierce sweet potatoes; place on a microwave-safe plate. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 10-13 minutes or until tender, turning twice. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, beat the cream cheese, butter, brown sugar and pumpkin pie spice.
  • 2. Cut an "X" in the top of each potato; fluff pulp with a fork. Dollop with cream cheese mixture. Yield: 4 servings.
Editor's Note: This recipe was tested in a 1,100-watt microwave.

"Loved this sweet and tasty recipe. Only thing I would do different next time is not use the microwave. I think I'll boil the whole potatoe till almost done and then finish in the oven. Microwave made the outside too tough and I like the skin as well as the inside of a sweet potatoe. I didn't have any pumpkin pie spice so I just used some nutmeg and cinnamon. Whats in pumpkin pie spice anyway? Still tasted great!"

"Can't wait to get to the store for the potatoes! This sounds absolutely delicious. I always bake my sweet potatoes in the microwave, but don't have a topping recipe that sounds this good. I have made cinnamon butter, but never thought of using cream cheese.
