12 servings
Butter-flavored cooking spray
2 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into uniform pieces
2 tablespoons light margarine

½ teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
¼ cup egg substitute or 2 egg whites or 1 whole egg

1 tablespoon fat-free half and half
1/3 cup pecan pieces
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray and set aside.

3. Meanwhile melt margarine in a medium skillet. Add pears and cook covered over medium heat until tender, stirring occasionally.
4. In a medium mixing bowl combine potatoes, pears, cinnamon and vanilla extract. Combine with an electric mixer on low speed. Cool slightly and add egg. Continue to mix until well blended.
5. Spoon mixture into 12 even mounds onto baking sheet (approximately 1/3 cup each). Make a slight indention in each mound using the back of a teaspoon.
