Absolutely delicious! It's our new favorite. Tastes almost like dessert :)
My husband loves this recipe. He is the king of junk food, but loved the flavor in this dish, and I loved that it had way less fat and calories than traditional sweet potato casseroles. Will definitely be making this part of our recipe rotations!
my family loves sweet potatoes, so I have tried many recipes over the years. This one is by far The Best!
I definately will make this recipe again-it is a keeper-not just for the holidays, but for everyday use
I do not care for sweet potatoes but had to have two helpings of these. I looked forward to them as leftover too!
My husband loved these sweet potatoes! They're sweet, without being overly so, and the coconut and pecans complement the potatoes well.
