Heat oven to 400 degrees. Scrub potatoes clean and pierce a few times with a fork. Place in the microwave and cook for 9-12 minutes until sweet potatoes are tender. Remove from microwave and cool slightly. Meanwhile, in a medium skillet, sauté shallot, garlic, thyme and rosemary in one tablespoon butter until tender (5-8 minutes). Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.

Slice each sweet potato in half and scoop out cooked sweet potato flesh, leaving enough of the sides to keep sweet potatoes firm (like a canoe!). Place sweet potato flesh in a bowl along with cooked shallot mixture, 2 tablespoons softened butter, egg and Brie. Using an electric mixer, mix until smooth.
