SWEET POTATO PUDDING
6 sweet potatoes
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1/4 cup cream
1/8 cup whiskey or rum or 1/4 cup sherry
salt and pepper, to taste
Wash and peel sweet potatoes and remove
Boil or steam until fork tender.
Drain and mash with a tablespoon of butter.
Heat cream until hot but not boiling.
Beat potatoes with a mixer, pouring in cream in
a thin stream; beat until fluffy.
Beat in the remaining ingredients.
Transfer potatoes to a buttered baking dish.
Bake for 20 minutes, until brown.
We like a
smoky flavored whiskey or dark rum with vanilla
undertones, such as Jack Daniels or Myer's. Most
of the alcohol evaporates during the baking, but
you can substitute 1 teaspoon of vanilla, if
desired. If the potatoes are not as sweet as you
would like, a teaspoon of honey can be added
along with the butter.
Preheat oven to 350įF.
