Notes from the Test Kitchen:
I just love combining two traditional Thanksgiving foods together in one pretty dish. This is an easy dish to prepare ... and we're always looking for some easy, delicious holiday recipes!


4 large
sweet potatoes
2 c
fresh cranberries
1/2 c
packed brown sugar
2 Tbsp
butter, melted
1/2 c
fresh orange juice
1/2 c
chopped walnuts
1/4 c
packed brown sugar
1/2 tsp
3 Tbsp
cold butter

Directions Step-By-Step

Boil potatoes with water to cover, until tender, about 50 minutes. Drain and cool. Peel and cut into 1/4 inch slices. Place 1/2 of the potato slices in a greased 2 1/2 quart baking dish. Top with 1/2 of the cranberries, brown sugar, and butter. Repeat layers. Pour orange juice over the top.
Cover and bake 30 minutes at 350. In small bowl combine nuts, brown sugar and cinnamon; cut cold butter in with pastry blender. Sprinkle over sweet potato mixture, and bake, uncovered for 10 minutes, or until topping is golden brown.

My daughter made a very similar dish at THanksgiving this year -- using chopped pecans instead of walnuts, and using thin slices of granny smith apples between the slices of the yams. Absolutely delicious and the apples add another texture and flavor. Had some converts after this dish!

Response to Tom and Catbell....I make an awesome granola that is nut free. Daughter #3 has nut allergy, so I'm very keen. :) Granola would be an awesome alternative topping! I'll post that recipe soon! ;D

Wonderful! Thanks so much for a great new twist on a traditional classic! The balance of sweet and tart was awesome! The only difference I did was to use pecans instead of walnuts-grandma is from SC and keeps me well supplied! :D It was so pretty on the church banquet table last night. :) I'll definitely be making this one over and over again! I'll post a pic once I download my pics from my camera. ;D
