Baked Sweet Potatoes and Apples

For a pretty and tasty side dish, try this combination of sweet potatoes and apples sprinkled with gingersnap crumbs. It’s one of my favorites to serve with turkey at Thanksgiving and Christmas.

    Easy. A hit at a dinner party. One layer of potato and one layer of apple was an adequate serving
