Heavenly Baked Sweet Potatoes Recipe

These luscious baked sweet potatoes taste a little bit like a pumpkin pie. They also feature fruits and nuts for added nutrition. If you like, toss some mini marshmallows on top to make it extra indulgent. —Cynthia Peterson, Roswell, New Mexico

"Made this for a family dinner, DELICIOUS and very little leftovers. Matched well with the slow-cooked ribs. Highly recommended!"
