Sweet Potato Balls
Boil sweet potatoes in skins until tender. Peel and mash as you would for mashed potatoes. Add as much butter and seasoning as desired. Use no milk. Cool slightly as it will measure easier. Make balls using 1/4 cup measure. Roll balls in chopped nuts and cool.
Brown Sugar Glaze:
Melt equal amounts of butter and brown sugar. Take one ball at a time and place in center of pan and pour glaze over ball. When glazed, remove to a muffin tin that has been lined with metal baking cups.
Place in 350 degree oven until heated (no need for further cooking). Can be used immediately, put in the fridge overnight, or frozen.
