My cousin and I came up with this simple recipe, when she overbaked the sweet potatoes for Thanksgiving Dinner. They tasted great! I don't really like sweet potatoes, but I took thirds on this one.

  1. Overcook the sweet potatoes. Either bake them in foil, steam, roast (I'm sure roasting would give them an even nicer flavour) or bbq. Get them overcooked so they are really soft and you can mash them with a fork.
  2. Add applesauce (we used an Organics Applesauce snack cup. I think it might have been sweetened, so you may need to add some sugar to tast if you use unsweetened).
  3. Add Cinnamon.
  4. Mash it all together with a fork, or use a blender for a smoother texture and serve.
