Directions

  1. Pour brandy over raisins in a small bowl, cover, and allow to stand for 2 hours.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Butter a 2-quart baking dish with the softened butter.
  3. Place sweet potatoes on a baking sheet, and bake in preheated oven until tender, about 30 minutes. Remove and allow to cool until cool enough to handle, then peel the potatoes and slice them 1/2 inch thick. Arrange the potato slices in the prepared baking dish, and sprinkle with sugar and brandy-soaked raisins.
  4. Return the sweet potatoes to the oven, and bake 30 to 40 minutes until hot and bubbly.

I didn't measure anything and it still came out so yummy :) I love how the brown sugar carmelizes with the brandy!

This is a simple and perfect sweet potato dish. Love the fact that they are NOT overly sweet. (We don't care for the overly sugared/marshmallowed concoctions that are so popular) The brandy compliments the potatoes beautifully and the raisins add a nice touch. You can bake, peel and slice the potatoes ahead of time and keep in the frig. till needed which is an added bonus. I will try this with dried cranberries for the holidays. This dish will definitely be on my Thanksgiving table. Thanks for sharing!

This was really good and a nice alternative to the sweet potato casserole we usually have with our holiday meals. I did have to bake it for an hour to get the potatoes tender but otherwise made it as written.

Worked GREAT! A real hit. Cooked this last Christmas and it has now been added to my seasonal recipe list.
