Prep Time:10 min
Inactive Prep Time:--
Cook Time:1 hr 40 min
Serves:8 servings

3 pounds sweet potatoes (about 4 large)
1 cup pecans
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, plus more for preparing baking dish
3/4 cup agave syrup, preferably amber
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 cup whiskey
2 cups crisp apples, peeled, cored, and sliced into 1-inch pieces

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
Place the potatoes on a baking sheet and cook the potatoes whole, do not pierce. Bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour.
Lightly squeeze the potatoes - if they are soft, they are done. Let cool.

If using canned potatoes, drain and continue at this point.
In a small saute pan over high heat, add the pecans and lightly toast. Add 4 tablespoons of butter, reduce the heat to medium, add the agave and spices, and allow to simmer for 4 to 5 minutes. Add the whiskey and continue to simmer for 5 minutes more.
Peel the potatoes and cut into 1/2-inch slices. Butter the bottom and sides of an 8 by 8-inch baking dish. Arrange the sweet potatoes, alternating with the apples. Pour the whiskey-pecan mixture over the top and place in the oven.
Bake for 30 minutes, basting the top with the whiskey sauce once at 15 minutes.
Remove and serve immediately.

Personal Notes:
I use canned sweet potatoes or yams in this recipe. Drain potatoes and add whiskey sauce. Apples may be omitted if desired.
