Candied Yams

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2010
This is a fantastic basic recipe. Wonderful to build upon based on individual tastes. I added a tsp of vanilla, a sprinkle of salt and a decent dusting of cinnamon to the sweet potatoes, butter and brown sugar. I combined them all together in a bowl and then scooped it into a glass Pyrex dish. Definitely add the marshmallows. It adds a great sweet crunch when they're toasted. Spray the foil with Pam before you cover it. That way the marshmallows don't pull off when you remove the foil. Also spray the Pyrex dish with Pam. It helps with cleanup. I quadrupled the recipe so I could add the leftovers to a pie crust and bake into a sweet potato pie.
