    Sweet potatoes for dessert? Yes! Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Cream and Pecans are a traditional Mexican dessert that’s actually good for you. It tastes just like pie and it’s a breeze to make.


    Ingredients
    6
    small sweet potatoes
    6
    teaspoons
    unsalted butter
    6
    teaspoons
    chopped piloncilo
    3/4
    cup
    crema
    3/4
    cup
    chopped toasted pecans
    Directions
    Scrub sweet potatoes well then place in a large saucepan and top with water. Bring to a boil and simmer for 15 minutes.
    Transfer sweet potatoes to a baking tray and bake in a pre-heated 350°F oven for another 20-30 minutes or until they are tender and you can pierce them easily with the tip of a knife.
    To serve, cut each sweet potato open and top with butter. As butter melts, sprinkle piloncillo or brown sugar on top. Drizzle crema on top and garnish with toasted pecans. Sprinkle a little more piloncillo on top and serve immediately.
