Apple-Sweet Potato Crisp

This recipe would make a good side dish at Thanksgiving or a wonderful dessert throughout the year. It is sweet enough to eat by itself or for an extra treat you could top it with whipped cream or ice cream.

If you have an apple slicer it goes together quickly. I don't even peel the apple. Or if you don't mind chopped apples you could use a food processor. Otherwise everything else comes together quickly. Plus it only has a half hour cook time. Put it in when you start dinner and even if your dinner only requires a 15 minute prep. time desert will still be ready in time.

  • 1 large can sweet potatoes
  • 1 large apple, sliced
  • 1/4 cup pecans, chopped
  • 3/4 cups brown sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoons nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • dash of pepper
  • 3 tablespoons butter

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Drain sweet potatoes and layer with apples into a baking dish (about 9x9). Sprinkle in the pecans.

Mix together dry ingredients. Cut in butter. Sprinkle over baking dish.

Cook for 30 minutes.
