Bourbon Walnut Sweet Potato Mash

4 lb. sweet potatoes
1/2 c. whipping cream
3/4 c. butter
1/4 c. pure maple syrup
2 T. bourbon
1 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. ground allspice
1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
1 c, walnuts, toasted and chopped

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Roast the sweet potatoes on a rimmed baking sheet until tender, 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Cool slightly. Scoop flesh into a large bowl, discard the skins. Mash the hot potatoes until a coarse puree forms. Heat the cream and butter over low heat until the butter melts, stirring occasionally. Gradually stir the hot cream mixture into the sweet potatoes. Stir in syrup, bourbon and spices. Season with salt and pepper. You can do all of this in advance. Cover and chill if making in advance. Rewarm in the microwave. Sprinkle with chopped nuts and serve.

You can make it ahead.
It doesn’t take up oven space.
It is delicious.
