    Wonderful! This was soo good. The pecan topping on it was excellent. Rich, sweet taste and not hard to make at all. This would be perfect on Thanksgiving, but I'll make it before than. Thanks, Jellyqueen.

    Loved this sweet potato dish. It was easy to put together for a week night meal but fancy enough for a holiday dinner. I halved the recipe and baked in an 8x8 casserole dish for the two of us (the 3 year old would not even taste such a thing). It was so good and would make a great dessert, especially with some vanilla ice cream. Thanks for sharing!!

    WE had this with dinner tonight and everyone seemed to enjoy it. We had company that included 3 VERY picky eaters, and they all went back for seconds. My one complaint is that I wish the recipe had been written a little more clearly. When I made the sweet potatoes, was I supposed to drain them? (I did) Was I supposed to toss everything together, or mix them in a mixer until smooth (I mixed them until smooth). Was the butter supposed to be melted, softened, or cut up? (I cut mine up). Also, I didn't know what size pan to use. I just guessed, and I think I did ok on that one. Finally, the topping was excellent. I put everything in the cuisinart and pulsed it until it was blended. Overall, this was very tasty. I;m just the type of cook that needs directions spelled out for me. :-)

    This recipe is wonderful. I have never liked candied sweet potatoes, but now I'm a believer! I mashed my drained and mashed my yams and went from there. My DH who loves candied yams said he didn't want any, after the tiniest of tastes went back for thirds. He says it's a five star keeper. I'll make this often. So much better than gooey marshmallows and wondering if the butter brown sugar ratio if okay.Thanks Jellyqueen
