I made changes from my original recipe. I did not add any butter or margarine to the sweet potatoes, not did I add sugar. The sweet potatoes stand alone. I seasoned it with pumpkin pie spice and vanilla and cinnamon. Yummy, This is a childhood memory although, it was nude, no topping.

Bake for 20 minutes and cool for 5 minutes. Cut into wedges or if it is too soft, scoop with a spoon.
