Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes

I was perusing through some old Taste of Home magazines that I had saved and saw this recipe.  I am in such a mood for Fall food and thought that it sounded tasty.  My family loves twice baked potatoes and I knew this one would be a winner, too.  I know that I'm thinking ahead, but I'm planning to have it on the menu for Christmas Eve.  It's soooo creamy and smooth.   Here's my slightly adapted version:

Creamy and delish with a steak.
2 sweet potatoes, scrubbed and pierced
2 ounces cream cheese
2 T. sour cream
1 T. butter
1/4 t. salt
2 T. brown sugar (I used a brown sugar blend)
1/2 t. cinnamon

Bake the sweet potatoes in the microwave until done.  Let cool enough to handle.  Cut the potatoes in half and carefully remove the pulp, leaving a thin shell.

In a bowl, mash the pulp, adding the cream cheese, sour cream, butter and salt.  Spoon into the potato shells.

Place on baking sheet.  Sprinkle with the brown sugar and cinnamon that have been mixed together.  Bake uncovered at 425 degrees for 12-15 minutes until heated through and topping is golden brown.
