Recipe from Family Circle
Ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 3 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2/3 cup packed dark-brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 cup toasted pecans, coarsely chopped
Directions
1. 
Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add sweet potatoes and stir-fry for 10 minutes, stirring frequently. Stir in 3/4 cup water and 1/4 teaspoon of the salt. Cover and reduce heat to medium. Cook for an additional 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
2. 
In a small skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Stir in brown sugar, pumpkin pie spice and remaining 1/2 teaspoon of the salt. Cook for 1 minute; stir until sauce is smooth.
3. 
Transfer sweet potatoes to an oven-proof baking dish; spoon glaze on top and stir to combine. Sprinkle top evenly with chopped pecans.
4. 
If not serving right away, do not top with pecans. Let cool completely; cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days. To serve, bring to room temperature. Reheat at 325 degrees F for 30 minutes. Sprinkle nuts over top immediately before serving.
