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!

A tad too sweet and lacking in flavor, so back to the drawing board I went. Halved the sugar, added minced onion and garlic and subbed chicken broth for the water. The changes were minimal, but the finished product was much more appetizing. Thank you Stephndon for the recipe.

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!

Excellent recipe. It will go well with many main dishes.

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 recipe. It had a real nice flavor and my family loved them.
