I remember my mother and her friend making this when I was young. It's so yummy and it's a perfect dessert for Autumn when fresh sweet potatoes are plentiful in Alabama. I was raised on a farm and we used to dig potatoes and store them in the storm pit to keep them from becoming rotten. I think you'll like it, It's also a good Thanksgiving desert. I wish I had one ready to eat right now !!
