3 pounds sweet potatoes or yams
2 Tablespoons Maine maple syrup
2 Tablespoons butter or margarine, softened

Place potatoes in 9 x 9 x 2 inch square pan. Cover and bake about 1 hour and 15 minutes or until potatoes can be easily pierced with a knife.

Slip off skins. Beat potatoes with electric mixer on medium speed until no lumps remain.
