This was good but waaaaaay too sweet. Next time I will definitely adjust the brown sugar/butter topping, maybe just do half. With the vanilla and marshmallows, it was overwhelming.

I also made this with no changes. So delicious! I did not bake any sweet potato pies this Thanksgiving and did not miss them. Do not leave off the pecans. They definitely add to the texture and flavor.

I made this exactly as the recipe suggests and it was incredible! Best sweet potatoes ever - and made the marshmallow and pecan-crust crowd equally happy
