Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes

6 sweet potatoes

2 tbsp brown sugar

4oz Sutton Mill Creek Hickory Syrup

4 tbsp butter

4oz cream cheese

1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

1/4 tsp ground nutmeg

1/4tsp ginger

Salt & ground black pepper

Preheat oven to 375°F. Place sweet potatoes on cookie sheet and bake for 1hr or until soft. Remove from oven and let cool enough to handle. Split potatoes and remove skins to a medium sized bowl, saving the skins as shells. In another bowl, combine brown sugar, Hickory Syrup, butter, cream cheese and cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and a pinch of salt and pepper. Incorporate all together with fork until well blended. Add the potato flesh to the butter and cream mixture above and fold in completely. Add the filling back into the potato shells and place on cookie sheet. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
