Sweet Potato and Peach Casserole With Pecan Topping

Splurge and enjoy this decadent side dish for the holidays or a special occasion. This is a nice change from the usual sweet potato casserole. The peaches compliment the sweet potatoes, and a little peach schnapps liqueur adds to the flavor. You don't have to be concerned about the alcohol content of the schnapps as the alcohol evaporates during the cooking process, but you can substitute the schnapps with peach nectar if you prefer. You can find peach nectar in the juice section of your grocery store.

    Hi! Has anyone tried frozen peaches in this yummy recipe and did you like them better? I made a small test recipe using canned peaches and gobbled up a couple as I was preparing and they seriously lacked peach flavor. I didn't taste them in the final product either even though it tasted delicious.

    Outstanding! I used the peach schnapps, tripled the pecan topping (I like lots of pecans on my sweet potato casserole). I pureed the canned peaches in a blender and mixed them in, instead of chopping them up. Came out great. It you don't have a blender or food processor you could probably substitute the canned peaches with peach baby food to get the same results. I live in Texas, and we love our sweet potato casserole here. This is one of the best I've ever had.

    This sweet potato casserole is a winner! I made it with the peach nectar, doubled the pecan topping and added miniature marshmallows over the top. Excellent! Going to try it with the peach schnapps the next time I make it.

    A wonderful combination of flavors! Made this to see how it would turn out, as I wanted to serve it on Thanksgiving. It was delicious and my family loved it! I made it with the peach flavored schnapps, but I bet it would also be good with the peach nectar as suggested. This dish will be on the menu in my family for the holidays.
