    ½ cup Brandy
    Lime zest and juice
    ½ cup maple syrup
    Pinch of salt
    3 tablespoons butter
    1 cup chopped pecans (toasted)
    Prepare the brandy pecan glaze: Pour the brandy in a small pot and
    reduce by half. Add the lime zest, lime juice, maple syrup, butter and salt

    4 tart apples (peeled, cored and quartered)
    2 sweet potatoes (peeled and cut into pieces the same size as the apples)
    Heat a 9” skillet to medium high heat. While
    searing the apples and sweet potatoes, place them alternately in the pan
    so they are squeezed tightly together. Pour ½ the syrup over.

    1 flaky butter crust

    Prepare crust by rolling it out 1/8 inch thick. Place crust on top of apples
    and sweet potatoes and tuck edges into the pan. Bake for 30 – 35 minutes
    or until crust is golden brown and apples and potatoes are soft enough for
    a toothpick to be inserted easily.

    Remove pan from oven and let cool off a bit. Place a serving dish on top
    of pan, and carefully flip over. Crust will be on the bottom.
