1/2 c. heavy cream
1 tsp. vanilla
OPTIONAL: add orange peel, about 1/2 a medium orange
1 tsp. salt
1/2 c. finely chopped pecans
1/2 tsp- 1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. freshly-grated nutmeg
In a batter bowl, mix 1/4 c. butter, 2 Tbsp. brown sugar, heavy cream, vanilla, orange peel, if using, and salt with the mashed sweet potatoes until well mixed.
Place sweet potato mixture in a buttered 8x8 inch glass pan.
Bake in 350 degree oven for 30 minutes or until top is brown and mixture is bubbly.
One of our favorite Thanksgiving side dishes that David Cantwell has been making for years in our home. No Thanksgiving is complete without it! :)
