Sweet Potato Puddings

Ingredients

6 teaspoons of olive oil
3 teaspoons brown sugar
6 sprigs of thyme
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)

Preparation

1
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Arrange racks to accommodate the number of trays you will be using.
2
Slice as many sweet potatoes as you need for your number of guests (estimate 1-1/2 slices per person).
3
I like to cover my trays with silpats (available in Splendid Items) for easy clean-up. On the silpat (or tray) drizzle about a teaspoon of olive oil in one corner. Drop sprig of thyme in the olive oil.
4
Lie a sweet potato slice on top of the olive oil and sprig. Continue these step until you have used all of your slices.
5
Slide the tray (s) into the oven and let them cook for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, take out the potatoes and gently flip each slice over.
6
Top each of the slices with about 1/2 teaspoon of brown sugar. Sprinkle on a little cayenne pepper if you like spice.
7
Return to the oven and cook another 20 minutes or until they are slightly brown and caramelized.
8
I usually serve these with the peel on, while baking the peel softens and becomes quite edible. Also, the peel holds the soft potato together and makes it easier to serve.
9
If you don't like the look of the peel, you can use a cookie cutter to cut out the tender center.
