Using electric mixer, beat first 5 ingredients in medium bowl until fluffy. (Can be made 3 days ahead. Cover and refrigerate. Bring to room temperature before using.)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line large baking sheet with foil. Place yams on sheet; bake until tender, about 1 hour 10 minutes. Slit each yam lengthwise. Spoon 1 tablespoon butter into each. Serve, passing remaining butter separately.
