    Perfect balance of flavors without being overly sweet. As noted by others, this dish would work with even less sugar as the apples lend a natural sweetness to the dish. I may not make sweet potatoes any other way from now on!

    Just the recipe I was looking for. It went really well together and wasn't too sweet. A nice side dish with ham!

    The tart apple combination is a winner! Everyone raved. Very pretty too.

    Excellent. Next time I will cut down the sugar as the apples naturally sweeten things up.

    Really yummy with my pork roast. I just added a sprinkle of cinnamon on both layers, which was delicious. Definitely try this one!
