    Very Easy and Everyone Likes It

    Nancy Markham from DENVER, COLORADO

    I decided to try these for our Thanksgiving dinner this year, what a GREAT RECIPE!!! It was not only very simple, but very good and even my husband ate two of them, and that's an accomplishment, since he always says he doesn't care for yams or sweet potatoes. I've had to run off 12 of the recipes on my computer for friends already, so I'm adding it to my recipe box so it's easier to get to. Thanks for the recipe!!!

    Recipe sounds great - but when you prepare a special dish like the above, one should not used canned food, but prepare from scratch. ML

    Thanksgiving Favorite

    Mattie Bryan from Massapequa, NY

    I made this for Thanksgiving. It was wonderful. Very easy to make. I'm ashamed to say I ate most of it before it got to the table. I used real apples which I coated with cinnamon. I also made one with marshmallows in the middle for my son. I highly recommend this dish.

    Deee-lish

    Jill Holmen from Aliso Viejo, CA

    I cubed, boiled, then mashed 2 medium yams instead of using canned and cubed about 1 1/2 granny smith apples instead of the frozen ones. I wasn't sure if the frozen ones came with sugar and spices so I tossed my apples in a ziploc with a little sugar and cinnamon. This recipe has a little baked pie taste to it, yet not that sweet. Plain yams are okay to me but this stuff I wanted to gobble up.
