Note from your blogista: today’s post is brought to you by my favorite 12 year old friend, Anne.  She takes beautiful pictures of delicious things.  And now I’m hungry.  Leave her a comment and let her know what you think of this recipe.  Much love, bloggites! -Annie


3 large sweet potatoes

2 oz cream cheese

2 tablespoons milk

1 tablespoon brown sugar

¼ teaspoon cinnamon

¼ cup pecans (optional)

First, preheat the oven to 425 degrees.  AFter you have done that, you need to wash the potatoes. Then lay them out on a cutting board. Cut them lengthwise next.

Lay the potatoes cut side down on a foil-lined pan. Cook them for 30-35 minutes.

When they’re done, allow them to cool for a while. When they’re cool, scoop out the insides and put them in a bowl.

Add the other ingredients to the bowl.


This smells soooooooo good.

Brown Sugar.

Yum. Need I say more?


Milk. Fine. Good.

Then mix the cinnamon, brown sugar, milk, and potato fillings until they are well blended.

Next, fill the potatoes with those ingredients. Take a spatula and smooth it out, too.

You can add pecans if you want.

Put the potatoes back in the oven for about 10 minutes.

Take them out and…

    Where does the cream cheese come in? It’s in the 1st picture, but not in the rest of them. I need cream cheese. Don’t be a hater of the cream cheese.

    Anne, sista, these look fab. I will try them once the temperature drops below 80 degrees here in Nashville. Because you just can’t eat sweet potatoes in the heat. It’s wrong.

    I think my friend Annie Parsons has not heard of sweet potato fries… Honey I’m not sure there is EVER a time you can’t eat sweet potatoes. 😉 Think of the grill… miam!
