Made these for Thanksgiving using ginger instead of cinammon & everyone enjoyed them. What a simple way to serve sweet potatoes. I will be making these again for sure

We loved this! I couldn't find pineapple preserves anywhere so I used apricot/pineapple preserves. Will be making this again, Thanks!
