I used yams instead of sweet potatoes( my grocer was out of sweet potatoes) and substitutes a couple teaspoons of honey in place of some of the maple syrup (cause I ran out). THEY WERE AMAZING!!! I baked them with foil over them for a bit to cut the cooking time almost in half. Just took the foil off for the 2nd half to let the glaze cook better!!

This was AMAZING. I cannot believe that so little butter, no brown sugar, and a small amount of maple syrup could make sweet potatoes so sweet. This is a super change from my family's other recipe butter, sugar, and more butter and sugar; topped with more butter and sugar. :)

I used olive oil instead of butter, it adds more flavor to potatoes. There is no need to cover the potatoes at the beginning of the cooking. And 50 minutes of total cooking is too much. The dish is ready within 30-40 minutes.

I made this to bring to my grandmother's on Thanksgiving and, aside from her turkey and cranberry stuffing, it ended up being my favorite dish. Delish!
