This is a delicious easy side to serve at a Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner, it may be doubled if desired and may be made well in advance and refrigerated until ready to bake -- the first time I made this I used 3/4 cup sugar, that was too sweet for our tastes, start with 1/2 cup and add in more until desired sweetness is achieved, white sugar may be used in place of brown but I find that brown is better, Splenda may also be used if desired :)

I halved the recipe no's very forgiving. I ended up blending the whole thing in the blender (although probably should have used the stick blender instead) and it had a fabulous creamy consistency. It was like eating pie! My not picky kid liked picky one had to be talked into it but decided that it wasn't too horrible.

Made this for company and everyone loved it! Perfect accompaniment for enchiladas. I think next time I will cut the sugar even more. Thanks Kittencal!
