Amber Philpott's twice baked sweet potatoes (two recipes)

These are two of my favorite recipes. They are really quick and prep ahead nicely. Both recipes have become instant hits in our family.

Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes with walnut streusel
3 large sweet potatoes
4 tablespoons packed brown sugar
3 tablespoons butter
pinch salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
for the streusel-
3 tablespoons gluten free flour
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
2 tablespoons butter

3 tablespoons packed brown sugar
Prick sweet potatoes with a fork or knife and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until soft. You can also microwave the sweet potatoes on high for 13-15 minutes as well.

Once sweet potatoes are cooked, slice in half and scoop out the centers into a bowl leaving a 1/4 inch border of sweet potato with the skin. Mix in brown sugar, butter, salt and cinnamon until smooth. Using a large tipped pastry bag, pipe filling back into sweet potato shells. {Or spoon it back in.}
In a small bowl, combine all ingredients for streusel and mix together until butter starts to warm and ingredients start sticking together. Top the filled sweet potatoes with the streusel and bake 20-30 minutes. Serve warm.
