I found and saved this recipe a number of years ago but had thought it not "fancy" enough for my Thanksgiving table, so I never tried it. Was I wrong! I finally made it yesterday for just my husband and myself and think I may serve it next Thanksgiving instead of the other wonderful preparations I have been using (also from this site). I would be terrific for "every day", too. It is simple to prepare, not cloyingly sweet and uses much less butter and sugar than other recipes. The apples softened a lot in the oven. The sweet potatoes, though soft, kept their shape. The blend together was perfect. (By the way, boiling them whole and then plunging them into cold water so they were not too hot to handle made peeling a breeze. The skins simply fell off by slightly rubbing.) I was a bit concerned that the sauce was too thin and runny when I put it in the oven, but it thickened up nicely, especially after taking off the cover for the last half hour. The only thing I have to work on is presentation, because I wouldn't want to put a 13x9 Pyrex baking pan on the dinner table. Next time, I am considering layering in circles in a round casserole dish or dividing into two smaller, square Corningware pans that might make a pretty presentation.
