Orange Glazed Sweet Potatoes

"I always receive compliments when I make this recipe." - Kay Lee, Hoschton

6 medium sweet potatoes
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 Tbsp. cornstarch
1/2 cup orange juice
4 Tbsp. butter or margarine

Boil sweet potatoes in their skins for about 20 minutes or until almost tender. Cool, peel and cut into thick slices. Lay slices in a greased casserole dish or shallow baking pan.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine sugars and cornstarch in a small sauce pan. Add orange juice and mix well. Place pan on a burner and cook, stirring constantly for about five minutes, then add butter. When butter has melted, pour sauce over potatoes. Bake for 25-30 minutes.
