Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes

I saw this recipe in the Kraft Foods magazine and gave it a try last night. It was pretty good! I love sweet potatoes and want to try to incorporate them into our diet a little better, not just at Thanksgiving. I forgot to take my own pictures so I'll just use the ones from the website. Mine turned out almost as beautiful. Ok, not quite. But they were yummy! (And here's a small confession, I didn't have pecans on hand, but I did have some mini-marshallows. I think you know where I'm heading with this one...)
