"This was really good. I omitted the lemon extract since I didn't have it and increased the vanilla to 2 t. I also added some cinnamon to the topping."

"I know this is a lightened up recipe, but it really seemed to be missing something. It almost seemed like it was just mashed sweet potatoes with no flavoring and a little bit of pecans on top."

"Good warm and cold. Used tub margarine instead of the butter; used lemon juice instead of the extract; mashed my sweet potato mixture in my Vitamix. My 14 month old liked it too."
