  3. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  4. Cut a thin slice, about 1/2 inch from the top of each potato.

  7. Carefully spoon mixture into shells, top each potato with 1/2 of the pecans.
  8. Place potatoes in baking dish. Bake for about 25 minutes; stuffing must be hot and tender. Top with remaining pecans.

Very good! We loved the apple with the sweet potato and the pecans add a nice texture. Served with Recipe#65208 topped with pork chops. I do sort of wonder if the butter could be omitted? Thanks Kayne for sharing. Made for Newest Zaar tag.
