Sweet Potatoes with Bourbon Molasses Glaze

3 Large Sweet potatoes
1/2 stick butter
1/4 cup molasses
1/2 cup of packed brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon of ground cloves
1/8 teaspoon of ground nutmeg
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup of bourbon.

Bake sweet potatoes in a 400 oven for about 45 minutes.  Cool, peel, and slice into circles.  Butter a casserole dish, and preheat oven to 325 degrees.  Melt the butter in a small saucepan on medium low.  Add the molasses, brown sugar, spices, and blend.  Add in the bourbon.  Remove from heat, and pour evenly over the sliced sweet potatoes.  You could also add sliced apples, or top with chopped pecans.  Bake for about 25 minutes, basting once or twice.  A great side dish for pork dishes, or in Autumn!
