Silky pureed sweet potatoes get fruity notes from applesauce and hints of heat from freshly grated ginger. A topping of caramelized diced apples makes a beautiful presentation, but also works wonderfully with the flavor of the sweet mash -- so well that nobody will miss the standard mini marshmallows.

  • Cut each potato lengthwise. Scoop flesh into the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment; discard skins. Add 2 tablespoons butter and the cream; mix on medium speed until smooth. Mix in applesauce and ginger; season with salt and pepper.

  • Transfer potato mixture to an ovenproof dish. Bake until heated through, about 10 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, toss apples with sugar in a bowl. Melt remaining 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add apple mixture; cook, stirring occasionally, until apples are golden and caramelized, about 10 minutes.

  • Remove potato mixture from oven; top with caramelized apples, and serve.
