4 Sweet Potatoes

cinnamon (to taste)
Preheat your oven to 350F, Peel and cut your sweet Potatoes into 1/2 inch circles, set aside. Put 1 and 1/ 2 tbsp of butter chunks at the bottom of a pyrex.
Take a small bowl and fill it with sugar, then bread each individual sweet potato chunk in the sugar on each side and place them in a pyrex. Once you've got all your sweet potatoes coated in sugar and inside the pyrex. Put the remainder 1 and 1/2 tbsp butter chunks at the top of the sweet potatoes.
