    pure maple syrup

Directions
1.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Butter eight 4-inch, 1-1/4 cup-capacity individual souffle dishes. Dust bottoms and sides lightly using 2 tablespoons sugar and set aside.
2.
In a large bowl, mix together sweet potatoes, egg yolks (reserve whites), cream, 3/4 cup sugar, cinnamon, and 1/4 cup maple syrup; beat until smooth. Set aside.
3.
In a separate bowl, beat egg whites with remaining 2 tablespoons sugar until soft peaks form. Add one-quarter of the egg whites to the bowl with sweet potato mixture and gently fold in with a rubber spatula. Fold in the remaining egg whites until just incorporated.
4.
Arrange prepared souffle dishes evenly spaced on a flat baking sheet. Fill each dish no more than two-thirds of the way up with sweet potato mixture and bake for 20 to 25 minutes.
5.
Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, heat remaining 1 cup maple syrup over low heat.
6.
Serve souffles immediately with warm maple syrup.
