Sweet potato stars

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
4 larges Sweet potatoes or yams; at least 3 inches in diameter
2 tablespoons Toasted sesame oil
1 cup Freshly squeezed orange juice
5½ tablespoon Brown sugar
½ teaspoon Ground nutmeg

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Place each sweet potato or yam on its side and slice crosswise into 1/2inch rounds. Using a 3inch starshaped cookie cutter, cut out a star shape from each round; discard the scraps. If your star cookie cutter is packed away with the Christmas decorations, place a paper star stencil on top of the round and use a paring knife to cut the shape Pour the sesame oil into the bottom of a shallow ovenproof baking dish and spread it so that the whole bottom is greased. Place the stars in the baking dish. Pour the orange juice over the stars and sprinkle the brown sugar and nutmeg on top. Cover tightly with aluminum foil. Bake for 30 minutes, then remove the foil and bake for 15 more minutes. Use a spatula to remove the stars from the baking dish. Top each star with 1 teaspoon of the pan juice.
