      Made these for Thanksgiving, but they never made it to the meal! They are that good! I used 2 cups fresh sweet potatoes and it worked great.

      I cut this recipe out of my BH&G and then lost it! So glad someone posted it up!!
      Made these for my daughters first birthday party and they were a hit! Used maple frosting instead of plain cream cheese and it upped the sophistication factor quite a bit... so pretty and so yummy!

      I wanted to make something different & unique for Thanksgiving so I decided on this recipe and they are fantastic! My Hubby and I just had one together and incredible! I changed it a little bit. Instead of the 1/2 tsp. of Vanilla, I used Maple Flavor instead. Also, I have my own cream cheese icing. You can use 1 whole 8 oz. block of cream cheese room temp, 1 whole container of cool whip & 3/4 c. sugar (mix together & add a few good shakes of cinnamon. Icing cupcakes and sprinkle with light brown sugar. Thank you so much for sharing such a wonderful recipe! Happy Thanksgiving!
