Sweet potatoes are baked with a hint of cinnamon and orange and make the perfect side dish for a holiday meal.
Heat oven to 400°F.
Prick sweet potatoes with fork. Bake 50-55 minutes or until soft. Cool slightly on cooling rack.
Cut lengthwise slit in potatoes almost all the way through, leaving about 1 inch at each end intact. Scoop out flesh, leaving 1/2-inch border on skins.
Place flesh into bowl; add all remaining ingredients. Beat at medium speed until smooth.
Spoon mashed potato mixture evenly into skins. Bake 15-20 minutes or until heated through.
Top with Cinnamon Sugar Butter Spread, as desired.
