Potato Nests

Would prefer to use real sweet potatoes instead of canned.

The Best Dessert Ever

My husband and I tried this recipe this past Christmas, for my in-laws, friend and relatives. Every one kept coming back for more. It was delicious and easy. You will definitely be satisfied.

Very Easy and Everyone Likes It

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!!!
