Preheat over to 375'.

Bake sweet potatoes for about 1 hour or until very soft. Scoop out insides as soon as they are cool enough to touch. Place the sweet potato meat into bowl of an electric mixer fitted with paddle attachment and add the orange juice, cream, butter, brown sugar, nutmeg, cinnamon, salt and pepper. Mix together until combined but not smooth, and pour into a baking dish.

For the topping, melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add the apple wedges and brown sugar and cook for about 5 - 10 minutes until lightly browned on both sides. Place on top of sweet potatoes.

Bake 30 minutes or until heated through.
