I tried this recipe and it was a hit. Not too dry and not too much liquid! I didn't use the pecans as we had none at the time but I did put marshmallows on top and it was fantastic. I couldn't get my family to stop eating on it!

This recipe sounded so good. Unfortunately I did not like it at all. It did not taste sweet enough and was very dry. I was very disappointed with this recipe.

After reading other reviews I wanted to make sure that it didnt turn out dry! I only had two large Sweet Potatoes so I cut the recipe by half added 2 more tbls of butter a little more milk and drizzled honey all over it. Then I followed the recipe from there. It was great. Almost like Souflae.

I felt that this recipe was too dry. I have never made sweet potato casserole before but have eaten it many times so I chose to use this recipe because it had familiar components like the casseroles I am used to eating. Sadly it was too dry. If I made it again I would decrease the flour and maybe even decrease the cooking time.
