I thought these turned out delicious. However, due to previous reviews, I decided to add only 1/2 tsp of sugar to the mix, then added a few dashes of cumin and pepper. I agree that 2 Tb would be a bit much for the recipe. The cumin and pepper, and lowered sugar made this recipe a five star!

This wasn't exactly what I was looking for. It was very sweet, and not the gravy-like consistancy I wanted, but if you like a sweet cream flavor this is it. I just wanted more of a country gravy flavor.

very good! I added 1 cup of frozen tiny pearl onions and used 1/2 and 1/2 instead of heavy cream I also added a teaspoon of onion and garlic powder

This is definitely a favourite of mine. Ironically, this is the ONLY thing I make that the husband admittedly hates and refuses to eat. Peas? No problem. Creamed peas? Yeah right. Anyway, I make mine with canned peas instead. And, if I don't have cream, I just use 2%. They're delicious! Thanks for the recipe!

I've been searching for a great cream pea recipe and this is it! It has just the right amount of sweetness and creamy texture, I'm making it again tonight. Thank you very much!

tasted really good. Mine had a bit too much sweetness to it, but that's because I heaped the sugar. But still a good dish
