Maple Mashed Sweet Potatoes



This is one of Chloe's favorites.  When we know she is coming to dinner, Roger makes this.  Easy and delicious sweet potatoes, mashed with maple syrup, butter, and a little cinnamon and cream.

Ingredients:
                3 to 4 medium sweet potatoes, about 2 pounds
                1/4 teaspoon salt
                2 tablespoons butter
                2 tablespoons maple syrup
                cinnamon, to taste
                3 to 4 tablespoons half-and-half or milk
Preparation:
Cook sweet potatoes in boiling water until tender. Let cool slightly; peel. Mash with salt, butter, and maple syrup. Add cinnamon to taste then continue to mash with the milk or half-and-half to desired consistency.

Serves 4 to 6.
