Sweet Potatoes With Amaretto and Macaroons

Recipe by EdsGirlAngie

This is the most fabulous and delicious sweet potato recipe I have ever made, a refreshing change from the marshmallow or candied dishes. It's perfect with rich holiday meats like turkey, goose, ham and other roasted pork... and it's sooooo easy. I made it for Thanksgiving; but it would be equally wonderful for Christmas, a unique addition to the holiday table!

This was so easy to make and was it ever delicious! Wow! We will now make this a permanent part of our holiday meals. This would be great for a pot luck dinner, too. Glad you posted it, EdsGirlAngie! Thanks! The Nickel family in NC
