HOLIDAY SWEET POTATOES

HOLIDAY SWEET POTATOES

4 medium-size fresh sweet potatoes
2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
6 tablespoons butter

Preheat the oven to 350F degrees. Spray a medium size baking dish with non-stick spray. Peel the sweet potatoes. Cut into halves and then divide each half lengthwise into quarters. Cut each quarter into thin slices, about 1/4-inch. Depending on the size of the potato, the slices will be about the size of a half-dollar or quarter.
Place the potatoes in the baking dish. Combine the sugar and cinnamon in a bowl and sprinkle over the potatoes. Cut the butter into small pieces and scatter over the sugar. Do not add any water. Bake uncovered 30 minutes. Stir thoroughly. Bake uncovered another 30 to 45 minutes, until the potatoes are tender when pierced with a fork. Serve hot.
To reheat potatoes prepared ahead of time, place in a 300F degree oven and bake uncovered until hot, stirring often. Leftover potatoes may be reheated in the same way.
