This is one of the family Holiday favorites...I got this recipe from my sister in law and we have been having it ever since....It is like having desert and meal at the same time....It reminds me of a yam pie (sweet potato pie) It is wonderful with Turkey and Ham...It is not prejudice what so ever...It goes good with chicken and goose or duck too....
