Smashed Sweet Potatoes

"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."

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 ...

I had to use canned sweet potatoes. I didn't have oranges either so I substituted clementines ('lil cuties) for the juice and zest. I added walnut pieces to the top and pushed them into the swe...
