Candied South Carolina Sweet Potatoes

This is another great side dish from Carolina Cooking.  I made a couple of changes, I cut the sweet potatoes in rounds instead of lengthwise and I raised the temperature to 400 instead of 350. It also called for baked sweet potatoes, I was confused if that meant to bake them in the oven first then peel and slice. I suppose you could try it this way too.
