2 tablespoon half-and half
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

Bake sweet potato tips:
Don't coat the sweet potatoes in or wrap them in foil -
This is often required in baked sweet potato recipes , but it is time -consuming and not necessary , that helps the skin separate from the sweet potato flesh , making it easier to peel and eat after baking .
 Prick the sweet potatoes with a fork before baking-
This improves the texture and helps the sweet potato separate from the skin .

Place a sheet of foil over the bottom of the oven .This catches any syrup that may drip from the sweet potatoes .Don't worry sweet potato juice isn't going to gush out and dirty your oven , there are just a few drips that turn into charcoal in the foil .

Don't place the sweet potatoes on a baking sheet , put them directly on the oven rack -The baking sheet to be unnecessary .

Leave the sweet potatoes in the oven after turning off the oven.
The residual heat continues to cook the sweet potatoes without burning them, so they get exceptionally tender and moist .
