    This is the 2nd year I have made this for Thanksgiving. My husband who hates sweet potatoes says this is the recipe for him because the spices give it a great flavor + he can't taste the sweet potatoes. I like to keep my veggies simple to keep calories low, but this recipe is a wonderful splurge + really makes the Thanksgiving dinner complete. Also a great way to incorporate nuts into my sons diet who otherwise turns them down.

    It's not as sweet as some of the other sweet potato casserole recipes. I have received rave reviews and shared the recipe numerous times.

    This recipe was awesome! The flavor of the sweet potatoes and spices made the taste almost pumpkin pie-like. It was a really refreshing twist to the typical sweet potato, brown sugar, and marshmallow dishes of years past. This will be the new addition to my Thanksgiving table.

    Made for Thanksgiving and everyone loved it. Added a couple more sweet potatoes to make enough for the crowd. Usually make sweet potatoes once a year, but with this recipe I will make often.

    This was such a hit!!! I made a chicken and pretended it was thaksgiving and tried out the spices and the side dishes. This was the best sweet potato casserole. Will definitely be making it on Thanksgiving!!!!!

    I love this recipe! My husband doesn't normally eat sweet potatoes, but even he raves about this dish. Sometimes I add the topping from the Streuseled Sweet Potato Casserole (Nov 2002), just to mix things up.

    This dish was a hit! I made it for Thanksgiving and even those who do not particularly enjoy sweet potatoes loved it. The pecans gave a nice crunch (I added extra) and the maple syrup and half-n-half made it silky and sweet. This dish really popped! Its my new go-to pot-luck recipe!

    This was easy and delicious. I used fat free half and half and it was just fine.

    Absolutely delicious! No other food encompasses fall like sweet potatoes for me. This was the right amount of sweetness. I made it just for my husband, daughter and I, but this would be awesome for a gathering like Thanksgiving.

    I made this last year for Thanksgiving and it was an extreme hit! Now, I have to make this and bring it over again this Thanksgiving. Actually, it was a demanded of me. LOL! I love it when a recipe turns out as awesome as this one did.

    I made this for T-giving, and everyone loved it! I had to leave off the pecans due to my son's nut allergy, but it was still great. Not too sweet in the base, so the overall effect with the marshmallows was just right. A keeper!
