Our family really loves this simple sweet potato recipe because it does not have the sugars and syrups that other sweet potato or yam recipes do. We usually have this dish for holiday dinners and cook the sweet potatoes in the oven along with the turkey or ham.
I'm not sure where the name comes from, but these little treats are a snap to make and look really good on a Christmas sweets platter. I got the recipe from my friend Melanie, who brought these to my Christmas baking exchange. Cook time is chill time.
Saw Rachael Ray and Oprah make this on an Oprah holiday party show. It took me 7 minutes, but who's counting! To give as a gift, wrap in cellophane and tie with a bow. Add an ornament or candy cane to make it festive. Variations include Recipe #146386 and Recipe #146387.
