I happened to have a sweet potato that I needed to use, but no almonds or coconuts. So it went without. The fluff was soft sweet tasting, without any unusual flavors or textures. Definitely good, nearing impressive, but not really worth the calories. All that butter and sugar! Hense the 4. Don't tell your guests what's in it and I'd give it a 5.

My family really liked it but I felt it was to sweet. Next time i am going to double the amount of sweet potatoes and slim down on the brown sugar pecan topping. Otherwise it was delicious tasted just like pie.

This Recipe was DELICIOUS!!! It was sweet enough to be a dessert but not too sweet at all. EVERYONE was blown away by this dish and wanted the recipe. Honestly, this was my favorite dish this Thanksgiving. I couldn't get enough of it!

I had to cook this longer than suggested but it was definitely worth the wait!

Very good! It was just a tad too sweet for my tastes. Next time I will probably only use 3/4 cup sugar.

Kinda sweet, but it went over really well with my picky husband. :o) I love sweet potatoes, so I'm glad to have a new recipe besides bakes sweet potatoes to use.
