I tweaked this recipe from one I found on the can of Bruce's Sweet Potato Pie filling. This was much easier and tasted SOOOO much better! It's a simple, easy, and perfect holiday and fall comfort dessert. This was a huge hit with our Ladies in the FCE Club at the Clifton Senior Center. It's also a wonderful way to start your day with a hot cup of coffee!

    **NOTE: I have a recipe for a Caramel Sauce but there are several recipes on Justapinch that are fabulous. The recipe I posted for the Maple Walnut glaze on the pumpkin spice cake would be awesome, just replace the walnuts with pecans or just leave the nuts out all together.
