Bourbon Mashed Sweet Potatoes
- 1 3/4 pounds sweet potatoes - (to 2)
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 1/4 cup bourbon whiskey
- 3 tablespoons light brown sugar - (packed)
- 2 tablespoons molasses
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
Lightly rub the sweet potatoes with the olive oil. Place on a foil-lined baking sheet and bake until tender, about 45 minutes to 1 hour, depending upon their size. Remove from the oven and let sit until cool enough to handle.
Peel the sweet potatoes and transfer the flesh to a large bowl. Add the cream, bourbon, brown sugar, molasses, and salt, and beat on high speed with a hand-held mixer until smooth. Cover to keep warm until ready to serve.
