Maple glazed yams with pecan topping

New postby bridesmom on Sat Dec 08, 2007 10:24 pm

Had this at a potluck dinner last weekend. I could sit and eat nothing else!! It's delicious. It's a definite for us for Christmas!

4 lbs of yams (red-skinned sweet potatoes), peeled, cut into 1/4 inch rounds
1/2 cup pure maple syrup
8 Tbsp (1 stick) chilled butter, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
1/3 cup all purpose flour
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup coarsely chopped pecans

1 Preheat oven to 400°F. Butter a 13x9x2 inch glass baking dish. Bring a large pot of salted water to boil. Add yams. Cook until water returns to a simmer, about 4 minutes. Drain; rinse in cold water.

2 Arrange yams in baking dish, overlapping pieces. Sprinkle with salt. Pour maple syrup over yams. Dot with 3 Tbsp of butter. Cover with aluminum foil and bake until yams are almost tender, about 25 minutes.

3 Mix flour and brown sugar in a medium bowl. Add remaining 5 Tbsp of butter. Rub in with fingers until mixture resembles a coarse meal. Mix in pecans.

4 Sprinkle pecan mixture over yams. Bake yams until tender, about 20 minutes.

Serves 12.

Note: can be made ahead. Do steps 1-3 the night before. The next day bring the yams to room temperature in the microwave, sprinkle the mixture over the top, and bake in the oven for 20 minutes.
Go Canucks!

Oh. That does sound good. Thanks for the recipe.
I wonder if I could adapt some of the same ingredients into a pie?
