Makes 8:

4 lbs. Sweet Potatoes or about 8-9 medium potatoes

½ cup unsalted butter, softened

½ cup Bourbon of your choice

1/3 cup Orange Juice

¼ cup Light Brown Sugar

1 tsp. Salt

½ tsp. Apple Pie Spice

1/3 cup Chopped Pecans

Clean the potatoes well. Place the potatoes in a large pot over medium heat. Cover the potatoes with water and bring to a boil. Place a lid on the container. Cook about 30-45 minutes or until the potatoes are tender. Remove the pot from the heat and drain all the water from the Sweet potatoes.

Cool-off the potatoes for 15 minutes. Peel the potatoes—Preheat the oven to 350. Place the sweet potatoes in a large bowl. Using a potatoes masher, mash the potatoes until mainly smooth. Add the butter, Orange Juice, Bourbon, salt and apple pie spice and sugar. Stir until well combined.

Spoon the potatoes into a 3-quart casserole dish. Sprinkle the pecans over the top of the casserole. Cut up some butter to add on top of the pecans. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until the top is lightly browned and the potatoes bubbly. Remove the dish from the oven and cool for 15 minutes before serving.
