Okay first step... Take your sweet potatoes and bake them at 350 for about an hour or so. It really depends on the size of your potatoes. Last time I made these, I baked them for 60 minutes and some parts were still a bit undercooked. This time I baked them for 70 minutes and they were a little too soft to cut so there is a fine line. I did not get a picture of my baked sweet potatoes but I'm sure you can picture them. Next you scoop out the sweet potato and put it in a bowl. You want to leave a nice rim of potato still attached to the skin to give it some support. Drizzle some olive oil over the skins and throw them back in the oven to crisp them up. I'd say leave them in for about 5-10 minutes but watch them close.. If you have scraped a bit to vigorously like moi and have too much skin showing, it will burn the skin. And yes it may look like I need a new cookie sheet but the truth is, I did get new cookie sheets for Christmas and for some reason I still grab this old one to use. I say it's well loved and seasoned.
Isn't that starting to look deeeee licious?????
Here's the recipe.
