Double Baked Sweet Potatoes

6 sweet potatoes, medium sized
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
8 ounces softened cream cheese
1/3 cup brown sugar
4 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/3 cup chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Rub potato skins with oil; wrap each in aluminum foil.

Bake in preheated oven for 1 hour, or until soft when poked in the center.

In a large bowl combine cream cheese, brown sugar, butter, vanilla, salt and pepper. Slice each baked potato in half lengthwise and scoop inside into the creamy mixture. (Caution they will be very hot so this works best using a clean towel to hold the potato.) Mix well and fold in walnuts.

Spoon mixture evenly back into each potato skin and bake for about 10-15 minutes longer at 350 degrees; heat through.
Yield: 12 servings

*My Notes:*
-Caution the potatoes will be very hot after baking so this works best using a clean towel to hold the potato while making the mixture.
-Thank you Gail
