  1. Wrap each sweet potato with aluminum foil and bake in a preheated 400 degree F oven for about 1 hour, or until soft.
  2. Let cool slightly and cut each potato down the center. Scrape the insides of each potato into a large bowl, discard the skins.
  3. Use an electric hand mixer to beat the potatoes with the butter, heavy cream, maple syrup, brown sugar, and salt. Beat until you achieve your desired texture.
  4. Garnish with chopped pecans if desired. Serve immediately.
