Whipped Honey Sweet Potatoes
- 2 pounds sweet potatoes, about 3 large sweet potatoes
- 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into ½-inch chunks
- 2 tablespoons honey
- Kosher salt, to taste
- Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
- ½ cup roughly chopped pecans
Preheat oven to 400º. Prick the sweet potatoes all over with a fork. Place the sweet potatoes on a rimmed baking sheet and bake until very tender, about 1 hour. Let cool then halve the sweet potatoes. Scoop out the flesh and add to a food processor fitted with a blade attachment then discard the skins. Add the butter and honey and process until the mixture is smooth. Season with kosher salt and pepper.
Serve hot in a serving bowl topped with fresh honey and chopped pecans.
