*Meanwhile, in 1-quart saucepan, heat maple syrup to boiling on high

*Spoon maple-cranberry syrup evenly over potatoes

*Bake, uncovered, 20 minutes or until hot

"Hands down the best sweet potatoes ever ever (that is not a casserole, the sweet potato casserole recipe is even more crazy good, but different – we like to have both versions they are each so good on their own) I think it is the sauce and the fresh cranberries...I don't know, but this is so good you should go make some. Right now" ~ Judy Submitted by Chris
