Delicously flavored with Amaretto; For those with children; as these cook the alcohol evaporates, leaving a wonderful almond flavor to the yams. From my dear friend, Carole, who is no longer with us.


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Cook yams in boiling water long enough to soften, but still firm.
  3. Peel and cut into 1/2" slices. Peel and core apples; slice thinly.
  4. In a butter casserole dish, altenate layers of yams, apples and pineapple, dotting with butter, sprinkling with cloves and sugar--until all are used.
  5. Pour Amaretto over all.
  6. Cover and bake for 30-40 minutes or until apples and sweet potatoes are tender.

OUTSTANDING! Great flavor, easy prep! I used just a bit more than 1/4 cup of dark brown sugar! Also steamed the yams, then sliced but did not peel, since I like the flavor of the skin! Maybe not as pretty in the end, but very tasty! Definitely a keeper to make again & again! [Made & reviewed for one of my adopted chefs in this Spring's PAC]

What a wonderful combination! Full of flavor and not overly sweet - just right. I cooked my yams too much at the beginning, so I didn't layer the ingredients so much as mix them together - but it didn't matter - it was delicious. Thanks for posting!
