|Butter To Grease Baking Pan|
|3 lb||Sweet Potatoes, baked, cooled and peeled|
|3||Golden Delicious Apples, peeled, cored and sliced lengthwise|
|Fresh Lemon Juice, about ¼ cup|
|1 cup||Pecan Halves|
|1 stick||(1/2 Cup) Butter|
|½ cup||Firmly Packed Light Brown Sugar|
|2 Tbsp||Dark Rum, optional|
|1 tsp||Pumpkin Pie Spice|
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease baking dish or pan with butter. Slice the baked sweet potatoes into one-inch thick slices. Toss apple slices in lemon juice. Alternate sweet potato and apple slices in prepared baking dish. Sprinkle with pecans.
Combine butter, sugar, molasses, rum (if using), and pumpkin pie spice in a saucepan. Cook, stirring, over medium heat until sugar dissolves. Spoon syrup over sweet potato and apple mixture. Bake for 30 minutes, basting occasionally with syrup.
We enjoy whipped sweet potatoes with melted marshmallows on top at our house, but find Sweet Potato and Apple Bake a delightful change.
