Sweet potatoes were always a favorite of mine as a kid. This one is a little different and I think very good. Goes well with ham.

Brought this recipe to a family Thanksgiving Dinner. Couldn't get more compliments. I did not have on hand apple pie filling. See recipe "#130444" and my review. Worked out the best. Thanks ratherbe!
