For a more intense flavor, bake whole sweet potatoes, instead of boiling them, at 350° for 1 1/2 hours or until tender.
Peel potatoes; cut into 1-inch pieces.
Bring potatoes and water to cover to a boil in a large saucepan, and cook 12 minutes or until tender.
Drain and return potatoes to pan. Add remaining ingredients. Mash with a potato masher or fork until smooth.
Note: To make ahead, spoon mashed potato mixture into a large baking dish; cover and keep warm in a 350° oven up to 1 hour.
