This was part of Thanksgiving 2012. The recipe was easy to put together and delicious. However, I think that 2 tablespoons of vanilla was a bit much. It overwhelmed the rest of the flavors of the dish. I will make this again, but will cut the vanilla in half. The butter, pecan and butter topping was excellent. I sprinkled the leftover bag of pecans on the top.
Seems like I'm always doing trial runs with various recipes, & this one was no different! I did cut it in half for just the 2 of us (several meals) & it's now on my list of to-make-again recipes! Except for the fact that I didn't peel the sweet potatoes (we do love yams, but we also like that nutritious peel) the recipe was followed right on down! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]
