I can't imagine Thanksgiving dinner without yams, especially candied yams! This is my favorite yam recipe and it's definitely on the Thanksgiving menu this year, I just hope they actually make it to the dinner table. Enjoy!
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
3 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into ½ inch slices
3 tablespoons orange juice
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
Preheat oven to 350F.
Combine brown sugar and pumpkin pie spice in a large bowl; add potatoes and toss well. Spread in a 9x13-inch baking dish.
Combine orange juice, vanilla extract and butter; pour evenly over potatoes.
Cover and bake 40 minutes. Remove from oven and stir. Bake uncovered an additional 15-20 minutes or until potatoes are fork tender.
