This is Kim O'Donnell's adaptation of a Martha Stewart Living recipe. Haven't tried it yet but it looks yummy and has some of my favorite ingredients!

These are super-good. Even using light coconut milk and cutting back on the butter, they are still rich and flavorful. If you like Thai-style curries, you'll love these.

  3. Roast on a baking sheet for about an hour, until soft.

  10. Add maple syrup to taste.
  11. Butter small gratin dishes or a large casserole.
