"Sweet potatoes with orange and bourbon. I use 1/2 cup sugar but if you prefer candied sweet potatoes, use the whole cup. Orange juice can be substituted for the bourbon if you are serving to small children. Originally submitted to ThanksgivingRecipe.com." — Waneta

pumpkin pie spice

This is so good. Not too sweet. I chose to leave the marshmellows out. I have made it several times now and everyone loves it.
Not sure what I did wrong, but the sweet potatoes didn't get tender enough and I ended up having to put them in the food processor. A mess! The finished product tasted good, but wasn't a huge departure from traditional sweet potato dishes.
Yummy! Didn't have the bourbon or the pumpkin pie spice, so added allspice, cinnamon and nutmeg. Browned the marshmallows as recommended. It came out great.
This was very good but the orange flavor was overpowering. Might be good for someone who doesn't like the flavor of sweet potatoes. Next time I make it (and I'll definitely make it again) I'll half the amount of orange the recipe calls for.
This is a great way to prepare sweet potatoes! I cut the sugar to 1/4 c., use 1/4 c. o.j. (no zest) and cut the bourbon to 1/4 c. And I don't use the marshmallows. It's still plenty sweet and creamy.
Easy, and delicious. I didn't have an orange, so I substituted with std orange juice, and it turned well. This will be a fall staple at our dinner table.
WOW I CANT BELIEVE I COOKED SOMETHING SO DELICIOUS!! PERFECT RECIPE
This was a hit both times I prepared it! Once I brought it to a picnic on the trail party and it was great heated in a fireplace! Second time it was just as good for a Thanksgiving side dish...
Everyone loves it!
