Sweet potatoes, amaretto, and pecans make a wonderful flavor combination in this autumn side dish...

Top Review by Chef Eddie Flowers

I made these for the first time Christmas Day. It was a gamble that paid off. I added one touch to mine though...marshmellows. I did notice that the sugar buttermilk mixture became frothy while baking. Before I added my marshmellows I mashed the potatoes slightly to better mix everything; then I added the marshmellows on top and returned to the over for five minutes. Everyone love it!
