I got this recipe from my sweet sister several years ago and the other day when I asked her where she got it, she remembered finding it on But we couldn’t find the exact recipe.  But here’s the recipe that I love and can’t enjoy Thanksgiving without.


Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes
  • 6 sweet potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons oil (vegetable or canola)
  • 1 package (8 oz) cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped cashews
Heat oven to 350 F.
Rub sweet potatoes with oil and wrap in tin foil. Bake in over for an hour or until tender. While potatoes are cooking, combine all other ingredients and mix well. After the potatoes have finished cooking, scoop out the centers and add it to the other ingredients. Mix well again and scoop back into the potato skins. Back for another 7-8 minutes until nice and hot.


Enjoy your Thanksgiving meal.
(if you don’t celebrate, try the recipe anyway…)
