Sweet Potato Gratin

This decadent gratin could become your next holiday classic. The slightly spicy and smoky chipotle puree provides a great balance to the sweet potatoes and cream and takes this dish to another level of flavor. It's amazing how good three ingredients can be.

      In a 10-inch square baking dish with 2-inch-high sides, arrange an even layer of potatoes on the bottom of the dish, drizzle with 3 tablespoons of the cream mixture, and season with salt and pepper. Repeat with the remaining potatoes, cream, and salt and pepper to form 9 to 10 layers. Press down on the gratin to totally submerge the potatoes in the cream mixture.

      Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 30 minutes. Uncover and continue baking for 30 to 45 minutes, until the cream has been absorbed, the potatoes are cooked through, and the top is browned.
