Couldnt find yellow sweet potatoes but wanted to try this recipe so I used yams and loved them. Used half and half instead of whipping cream and whipped everything together with my electric hand mixer. Put the potatoes back in a pot to heat thru before serving. If I ever spot yellow sweet potatoes will have to try them too. Made and reviewed for the Culinary Quest 2016 - Bahamas.
