Apricot Yams

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by Silent Rain

I believe this recipe came from a "Southern Living" cookbook. Everyone raved over the taste. It's a great recipe for the holiday season. The yams I used were huge, so I adjusted the portion size. You could probably stretch this out even further as a side dish with all the other foods you will be serving.

LOVE THOSE YAMS, & these, too, for that matter! I did cut most of the ingredients back by almost 2/3, but the last 3 (apricots, butter & toasted pecans) by only 1/2, so the resulting dish, I realize, was a little different than written! Still, IT WAS GREAT, & I'll definitely be making this (as a whole recipe!) during the upcoming winter holidays! Thanks for sharing!
