"I was hesitant to change my recipe, but I went ahead and tried this one and boy, am I glad I did. These were incredible. Now I'll be making this casserole year round, rather than just for the holidays. Thanks so much for sharing your mom's delicious recipe, Sandi. Merry Christmas!"

"I had some left over sweet potatoes that I had baked. I searched TOH and found this recipe. It was very tasty. I did add more pecans, because I love pecans. I am going to double the recipe for Thanksgiving."
