Amaretto Yams

Recipe by  

"I had this dish years ago at an ex-boyfriend's house while I was there for Thanksgiving dinner and his mom shared her recipe. I am usually pretty traditional and old-fashioned with my Thanksgiving menu, but always make these because they are so good! My relationship didn't last, but this recipe continues to be a favorite, years later!"

I tried this recipe a couple years ago with just two small changes. I couldn't find amaretto cookies so I used a mix of crushed ginger snaps and nilla wafers instead. I also made a rather large batch, and added a good bit more amaretto. This is a huge favorite recipe for my family now, and Thanksgiving dinner is simply unacceptable without it. I definitely recommend this to anyone looking for something new. Thankyou so much for sharing this!
