    I made this for Thanksgiving and my family loved it. I added a tsp. of vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg. I also added 2/3-3/4 cup of eggnog. I'll definitely be making this again for Christmas.

    I made this one Thanksgiving, and now it is always requested. A delicious recipe, and really more like dessert.

    I have made this for a few family gatherings and it is always very popular. I use canned yams which makes it incredibly quick and easy.

    What a wonderful recipe! I had most of the ingredients in my cupboard. I substituted ground flax seed for nuts and added almond extract,vanilla extract, cinnamon, and nutmeg. My daughter and I had it for brunch.
