SWEET Potatoes

4 sweet potatoes
cooking oil
3 Tbsp. sugar
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 c. whipped butter

Preheat oven to 350. Rub oil on the skin of the sweet potatoes and bake them for 45-75 minutes. When they are done, the outside will have darkened and the inside will be soft. You may see liquid from the sweet potato oozing out when it's close to done. As potatoes bake, combine sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. To serve, slice a sweet potato down the center. Add two tablespoons of whipped butter, and sprinkle some cinnamon/sugar over the top.
