  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Butter a 2-quart baking dish with the softened butter.

  • Place sweet potatoes on a baking sheet, and bake in preheated oven until tender, about 30 minutes. Remove and allow to cool until cool enough to handle, then peel the potatoes and slice them 1/2 inch thick. Arrange the potato slices in the prepared baking dish, and sprinkle with sugar and brandy-soaked raisins.

  • Return the sweet potatoes to the oven, and bake 30 to 40 minutes until hot and bubbly.

This is a simple and perfect sweet potato dish. Love the fact that they are NOT overly sweet. (We don't care for the overly sugared/marshmallowed concoctions that are so popular) The brandy compliments the potatoes beautifully and the raisins add a nice touch. You can bake, peel and slice the potatoes ahead of time and keep in the frig. till needed which is an added bonus. I will try this with dried cranberries for the holidays. This dish will definitely be on my Thanksgiving table. Thanks for sharing! Read More

This was really good and a nice alternative to the sweet potato casserole we usually have with our holiday meals. I did have to bake it for an hour to get the potatoes tender but otherwise made it as written. Read More

This is a great recipe that isn’t too sweet. The recipe is perfect although I usually double it because the family loves it. An alternative to cooking the potatoes is drop them in a pot of boiling water for 15 to 20 mins the peel. Read More

This is the recipe for you if you don't like your sweet potatoes too sweet. I made about 6-7 lbs of potatoes so that I can have left over but only have about 2 cups left. Prepared it night before and just stick it in the oven about an hour before dinner. Easy recipe. Thanks for sharing Read More

This is a nice simple side dish. I tried both golden raisins and dried cranberries and the raisins were definitely better. I also sprinkled on some kosher salt. Next time I will add butter on top of the potatoes as well. Read More
