I used to make this dish with lots of butter, brown sugar and cream. I slimmed it down and this low-fat version is just as delicious-my family loves it,” writes Shannon Abdollmohammadi from Woodinville, Washington.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 4, 2012

"I first saw Shannon make this on PBS, and it's now become a staple for all our Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners! I omit the chipotle peppers (personal taste), but it is still incredible! Most people can't believe how good it tastes - it's even converted people who say they don't like sweet potatoes! I use a hand blender for easier cleanup, and I've discovered that it also tastes excellent when the apples and the sweet potatoes are all blended together instead of kept separate. Yum, yum, yum!!! My mouth is watering just thinking about it... :)"

"There's a sweet layer on the top and a spicy layer under it and they blend together perfectly. ^_^"
