These were great! My grocery store didn't have any canned sweet potatoes so I ended up having to use fresh ones. I just peeled, cut and boiled them first. It wasn't until much later that I realized that I had only put in at most 40 ounces of sweet potatoes. The recipe calls for 12 more ounces. They still turned out really well though! They were a bit "damp" but I am sure that was because of the shortage of sweet potato. I will make these again. Thanks!

I was wondering how I would cook my sweet potatoes since my whole oven was being used all day. This recipe definetely saved the day. I followed the recipe exactly, except I cooked them on medium instead of high. They came out great!
