Very tasty recipe perfect for the holiday table! I did not prepare the potatoes with the pastry bag, but rather used a 9x13 pan to cook the sweet potatoes in the oven. It turned out very well! The flavors were wonderful!

The flavor combination of the bourbon and ginger is wonderful! I am not rating this, because I didn't truly follow the recipe; I just borrowed from it. In addition to the ingredients called for in this recipe, I added an egg, some extra brown sugar, cinnamon, vanilla, and orange juice. All of these flavors combined together to create a wonderfully rich dish. I would have never thought to add bourbon and ginger to my sweet potatoes. Thank you so much for this great idea!
