Sweet Potato Casserole

This recipe is truly one of my families all time favorites! The taste of this recipe leans more towards being a dessert than a casserole! This is a traditional dish that I normally make at Thanksgiving and Christmas. Yet, as my family and myself have found, you can enjoy this recipe anytime you crave it! Oh, and I cannot take the credit for this recipe; it was given to me years ago by my former mother in law. I think she got tired of me asking her for it and she finally gave in and gave me this wonderful family favorite!
