Shortening, butter, or cooking spray to casserole dish
2 tablespoons butter
3/4 cup maple syrup

  9. Cut the 2 tablespoons of butter into small pieces and place them on top of the apples. Pour the maple syrup over the top.
  10. Cover the casserole and bake the sweet potatoes and apples in the oven for 30 minutes. Remove the casserole from the oven.
