Loved this recipe! Made it for my family Thanksgiving and everyone loved it! I was even surprised it turned out so tasty. I was fearful of having my potatoes crumble or be underdone, so I did stick with my usual method of washing and boiling the potatoes first. I monitor them by pricking with a fork for doneness. I cook a lot at a time, so softer ones get used for pies since they will be mashed anyway and the firmer ones I use for the recipe. Boiling first means once they cool, I can peel almost all of them by hand, the skin raises up and just comes right off. It's stickier, but easier than peeling raw. I used half sugar and half dark brown sugar like some of the other comments. I put the sliced potatoes in a baking dish, poured a little of the melted butted over them, the rest of the butter went into the sugar mixtures. I then gently incorporated the sugar butter mixture into the potatoes so that they were covered but not handling them too much so they wouldn't break up. I then covered with foil and put them in a 350 oven. I'm not sure of timing, maybe half hour then I uncovered for nother half hour or so. Mostly I just "eyeballed" it. I removed when the sugar was brown and bubbly. There may be small clumps of unmelted sugar coating, but it makes a nice addition and texture. This is especially good if you have to heat it in the microwave because it will then melt down more. I love vanilla, but forgot it! No problem...these are sweet and flavorful. My new go to recipe!
