Candied. Yams. What comes to your mind when I say that? When I think about candied yams, I think of a casserole dish that’s burned on the edges, with some sort of orange stuff in it, topped with marshmallows. And, oh, by the way, this is supposed to be a savory dish that you eat with dinner. Not my favorite. (For the record, I love yams/sweet potatoes in other forms.) I always felt that candied yams were too sweet for dinner, but not sweet enough for dessert, and that’s why there always seems to be a ton of leftovers of the stuff.

Today, we’re taking those leftovers, adding some butter, wrapping in dough, and shipping those candied yams to Dessert Town. What’s that? You think we should be taking the candied yams to Candyland? Pfft, get out of here, that’s not a real place. To Dessert Town!
