  1. This recipe went over well with my Holiday dinner guests last year. I substituted Silk Vanilla Coconutmilk beverage (I had it on hand) and used vanilla Dandies.
    I would like to try this recipe with cinnamon, fresh nutmeg and a praline pecan topping next time I make it.
    Placing the sweet potatoes on a baking sheet and wrapping it in foil, then starting them in a cold oven set to 300°-325° makes them taste very sweet. Bake until soft. Handle them with care, as they will be very tender. This is how I bake sweet potatoes when I am going to mash the flesh.
    Then pick up at step 2 in the recipe. That’s what I did.

I love hearing from you! Please leave a comment!
