I made this last year and the family enjoyed it so much it was requested again. I just popped a double batch into the oven...do ahead for tomorrow. I made it just as the recipe directs except I added about 1 tsp. Pumpkin pie spice (for double recipe) to liven it up bit more. A taste prior to adding the topping told me it was awesome!! BTW a 13" x 9" baking dish was the perfect size for that double batch. Read More

I am so grateful for the Allrecipes ingredient search function. I cleaned out my pantry last week and came across a jar of apple butter that was given to me several years ago. Not interested in baking I wondered what I might do with it. Wow! What a great recipe. The only changes I made: 1) I used three pounds of sweet potatoes; 2) I left off the topping. It was great. Next time - and there will be a next time - I will try adding a little salt. Read More

I used lactose free milk in place of heavy cream because of food allergies. Everyone liked it and it's not excessively sweet. Will make again. Read More

I baked my sweet potatoes because I find them hard to peel. Once they're baked you just peel the skin off. It's so easy! I also only used half the amount of brown sugar that the recipe called for. I do that with most of my baking. My family loved it!! Read More

I loved this recipe. I already have one that is here on Allrecipes that I always use. Yet I wanted something a little different so I tried this one because of the apple butter. That was it. I will always use apple butter from now on. However I did omit the honey as I cannot stand the taste of it. Try this recipe. You'll love it. Read More

Made this in a pinch due to dropping the original potato recipe I had made. It must have been a Devine intervention because my family loved this recipe and will have to definitely double it for Christmas. Read More

Used milk instead of cream. Tasty but a little on the sweet side. Would definitely use less brown sugar in the topping if making again. Read More
