Wash sweet potatoes, and place on a baking sheet; prick with a fork. Bake at 400 for 1 hour or until almost tender. Remove from oven. Let stand 45 minutes or until cooled.

Personal Notes:
This is a great Thanksgiving dish. You can adjust the glaze to your taste. It's actually a lot of glaze, so cut back a little if you don't want it too sweet.
