Number of ingredients: 9
Ingredients:
  • 2 pounds sweet potatoes (Washed and Peeled. This was 2 large sweet potatoes for me. Weigh for accuracy.)
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar or sweetener
  • 3/4 cup white sugar or sweetener
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla (I use pure vanilla, not imitation.)

How to cook:
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Peel and slice the sweet potatoes into rounds about 1/2 to 1 inch thick. I love to use this swivel peeler from Amazon. It peels fast.
  3. Add the sweet potatoes to a 9x13 baking dish.
  4. Heat a saucepan on medium-high heat and add the butter.
  5. When melted, add the ground cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, white sugar, brown sugar, and salt. Stir. You want to ensure the sugar melts down, but don't overcook the glaze.
  6. Remove the pot from heat and add in the vanilla extract. Stir. Pour the candied mixture over the sweet potatoes.
  7. Cover the sweet potatoes in foil and bake for 30 minutes.
  8. Remove the foil and stir and baste the sweet potatoes. Ensure the candied mixture fully coats the sweet potatoes.
  9. Cover the pan in foil and bake for an additional 15-20 minutes. Mine usually takes the full 20 minutes. Test the sweet potatoes by piercing them with a fork. You want for the potatoes to be soft.
  10. Allow the sweet potatoes to sit for 15 minutes before stirring. This will thicken up the sweet potatoes.
