How to Make Maple Roasted Sweet Potatoes

First, preheat the oven to 425°F and coat a rimmed baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray. Then scrub the sweet potatoes and dry well. Cut into ½ inch thick slices. Place the sweet potatoes in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet.

In a small bowl, whisk together the melted butter, salt, pumpkin pie spice and maple syrup. Brush half of the maple-butter mixture over the sweet potatoes.

Bake for 20 minutes. Flip and brush with the remaining maple butter mixture. Bake for another 20 minutes, until the potatoes are tender and caramelized.

Finally, to serve, stick a small leaf of fresh sage into the top of each sweet potato to look like a pumpkin.
