Would prefer to use real sweet potatoes instead of canned.


My husband and I tried this recipe this past Christmas, for my in-laws, friend and relatives. Every one kept coming back for more. It was delicious and easy. You will definitely be satisfied.


We have Thanksgiving in our area for everyone that lives there so this will be great. I have had these before but SHE would not give it to me. So thank you.


It is to die for! I have never made this particular dish before and you can be sure I will make it for almost every occaison. Thank you very much for allowing me the pure joy of trying this delicious meal.


I decided to try these for our Thanksgiving dinner this year, what a GREAT RECIPE!!! It was not only very simple, but very good and even my husband ate two of them, and that's an accomplishment, since he always says he doesn't care for yams or sweet potatoes. I've had to run off 12 of the recipes on my computer for friends already, so I'm adding it to my recipe box so it's easier to get to. Thanks for the recipe!!!


I made this for Thanksgiving. It was wonderful. Very easy to make. I'm ashamed to say I ate most of it before it got to the table. I used real apples which I coated with cinnamon. I also made one with marshmallows in the middle for my son. I highly recommend this dish.


This is great,Everyone just loved it,made me feel like a real chef. thank you so much for inviting me to web site. I really appreciate it.
