This tastes really good, almost like pumpkin pie. It is more of a dessert than a main dish. Next time, I will add 1 cup of walnuts.
great comfort dish!
This is now a 'must have' recipe at our Christmas and Thanksgiving dinners!
Love this casserole - have also substituted crushed gingersnaps for the vanilla wafers - my family enjoys both ways.
This was a hit last year for Thanksgiving. I thought I lost the recipe. I will be making it this year!!
