The ONLY way I make my sweet potatoes for Thanksgiving!

I really enjoyed these potatoes! They almost tasted like sweet potato pie. I made these to go with a ham at Christmas, and they paired very well. The only change I'll make is to reduce the cinnamon next time. Made for TYM tag.

These are so good. I did the oven method and cut the recipe in 1/2 to serve 2-3. DS who normally is not a sweet-potato fan was even caught snatching a couple right from the dish and popping into his mouth. Easy plus delicious!!!
