    Caroline Cooks's Note:

    Delicously flavored with Amaretto; For those with children; as these cook the alcohol evaporates, leaving a wonderful almond flavor to the yams. From my dear friend, Carole, who is no longer with us.

      OUTSTANDING! Great flavor, easy prep! I used just a bit more than 1/4 cup of dark brown sugar! Also steamed the yams, then sliced but did not peel, since I like the flavor of the skin! Maybe not as pretty in the end, but very tasty! Definitely a keeper to make again & again! [Made & reviewed for one of my adopted chefs in this Spring's PAC]

      What a wonderful combination! Full of flavor and not overly sweet - just right. I cooked my yams too much at the beginning, so I didn't layer the ingredients so much as mix them together - but it didn't matter - it was delicious. Thanks for posting!
