    twissis's Note:

    This is another recipe that is part of my recipe exchange program w/SusieQusie & is from the "1 of a Kind Cookbook" of the Junior League of Mobile, AL. SQ was so proud of herself for having undone a nearly lifelong dislike of sweet potatoes that she put this 1 on my agenda. Thx SQ!

      My goodness, who knew sweet potatoes could be so decadent! My canned peaches were sliced so I did mine a bit different but it sure didn't hurt the flavor at all. I only used about 1 teaspoon of butter and would eliminate entirely next time. You already get good fat oils from the walnuts. Didn't have an orange so I used a bit of orange extract. I put the mashed sweet potatoes on the bottom of a pammed pie dish and layered the sliced peaches on top in a circle. Sprinkled with a tiny bit of brown sugar splenda and the chopped walnuts. (see photo) A dish worthy of ANY company. Thanks for posting twissis.

      Just by looking at the ingredients, I thought this would be good but I was not expecting it to be FANTASTIC! I halved the amount of peaches using (1) 14 ounce can which yielded 4 halves, perfect for the 2 of us. I used the full recipe of the remaining ingredients and after stuffing the peaches, I spread the extra yams on the bottom of the dish, topped with the peaches and baked it. Grand Marnier (from my hidden stash ;-)) instead of plain brandy gave me a double dose of orange flavors. I think the nuts (pecans in my case) are a must as an added texture. A real keeper of a quick, easy recipe for 2. *** P.S. Sorry my pic is blurry - I was snapping quickly before it was snatched up & inadvertently used macro setting. No leftovers for a re-shoot, though.
