This is an easy and impressive way to cook apples and sweet potatoes. The cooked sweet potato slices and apples are alternately arranged in baking dish and topped with a delicious spicy orange glaze with pecans.

The sweet potatoes need to be soft but still holding their shape.

One of mine was cooked that way and the other was very soft; so just put a spoonful of the sweet potato between the apple slices if the potatoes are too soft to slice.
