Sweet Potaoes w/ Carmel Sauce

Anything caramel, gets my palette going!

4 medium sweet potatoes (about 2 pounds)
1/4 cup butter
1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
1/4 cup evaporated milk (12 oz)
1 T. honey
1/3 cup pecans, if desired

Heat oven to 375* Line cookie sheet with foil. Pierce sweet potatoes with fork; place on cookie sheet. Bake 45- 1 hour or just until tender when pierced with fork; When cool enough to handle, peel potatoes and cut into 1/2-inch slices.

Reduce oven temperature to 350*. Grease 11x7 inch glass baking dish with butter or cooking spray. Place sweet potatoes in dish;

In 1-quart saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Stir in brown sugar and evaporated milk until completely incorporated; Cook and stir 2-4 minutes or until mixture is smooth and looks like caramel.

Stir in honey and pecans. Spoon over sweet potatoes.

Cover; bake 30 minutes or until thoroughly heated.

From start to finish: 2 hours.
