Ingredients
  • 4 large sweet potatoes, scrubbed
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Pinch freshly grated nutmeg
  • 1/2 orange, zested
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

  • Prick the sweet potatoes all over with a fork, drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Put them in a roasting pan and roast for 45 minutes until they are very soft. Remove the pan from the oven.

  • In a small sauce pot, over low heat, heat the cream with the bay leaves, then keep warm until ready to puree potatoes. Discard the bay leaves before adding to potatoes.

  • When the potatoes are cool enough to handle, scoop the flesh into the bowl of a food processor. Season with salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, orange zest, and brown sugar. Add cream and 1 tablespoon of butter and puree until super smooth.
