Sweet Potatoes with Cranberries

I made these for Thanksgiving instead of the traditional baked yams with brown sugar.I was wondering why this dish was so tart with the cranberries.Then I realized I forgot to put the maple syrup in them.You want to definitely put in the maple syrup to have that touch of sweetness

I tried this dish for Thanksgiving and used fresh cranberries instead of frozen. It was great. It had wonderful flavor. Definitely would make this again. Everyone was asking where I got the recipe. Thanks for a great holiday dish!

Very Satisfying

I recently made this dish and it was so very good! Not having maple syrup, I substituted a sugar free maple flavored pancake syrup and the dish was still just absolutely divine! If you haven't tried this one you should.

holiday potatoes

these were a wonderful change from the typical marshmallow topped version. I personally loved the tangy cranberries and the apricot taste.
