Sweet Potatoes in Creamy Cinnamon Sauce

"This is from the Low Fat Low Cholesterol Cookbook, and b/c I love sweet potatoes and cinnamon thought it would be good. I changed the serving amount after I'm Pat's kind review."

    I made a full recipe and 3 of us gobbled up the lot I think that says the lot. Thank you WiGal, made for Everyday A Holiday.

    My irrational fears of getting old might be getting the best of me along with premature blindness, but for the love of eating, I can't find the brown sugar amount in the listed ingredients. I guessed at the amount of sugar and in the meantime, Fairy Godmother please bring back my vision. Made for Everyday Is A Holiday.

    I really liked this, but I made it fatty. I used heavy cream and butter. I was also feeling lazy, so I just layered the potatoes and sprinkled with spices and brown sugar. They were yummy, and the sauce was very nice. I forgot the orange zest, though.

    This was a very great dish! I loved that it made just enough servings without having tons of leftovers. Everything cooked up with ease in 30 minutes. The only change was I used butter in place of the spread. Great flavors and tender potatoes. So glad I tagged you in 123 Hits.
