Twice-Baked Sweet Potatoes
Makes 4 servings.
2 medium-size sweet potatoes
3 to 4 tablespoons fat-free sour cream
1 ¾ teaspoons Equal® for Recipes or 6 packets Equal® sweetener or ¼ cup Equal® Spoonful™
½ teaspoon orange extract
Salt and white pepper
2 tablespoons chopped pecans or 4 teaspoons flaked coconut
1. Lightly grease potatoes; pierce with tines of fork. Place potatoes in baking pan and bake in 375°F (190°C) oven until tender, 35 to 40 minutes. Let stand until cool enough to handle.
2. Cut potatoes in half; carefully scoop out flesh; reserve potato shells.
3. Mash potato flesh until smooth; mix in sour cream, Equal®, and orange extract. Season to taste with salt and white pepper.
4. Spoon potato mixture into reserved potato skins. Place potatoes on baking pan and bake in preheated 400°F (205°C) oven until browned, about 20 minutes. Sprinkle with pecans or coconut (after baking), if desired.
