Sweet Potato Casserole

I have always liked Sweet Potato Casserole.  My bestest friend, GeorgeAnn,  had given me her Mother's recipe and I made it for several years.  My sister, Debra, brought a Sweet Potato Casserole to our parents house for Thanksgiving and it was the best Sweet Potato Casserole that I had ever eaten.  She had gotten the recipe from our parent's friend, Sharon Knowles.  I not only liked it, I loved it!  I make it for Thanksgiving and Christmas.  I used to think that I could not take a bite of dressing without cranberry sauce with it but now Sweet Potato Casserole has taken the place of the cranberry sauce.  It is delicious with each bite of dressing.  Make sure you save this recipe for the holidays.  It will be a favorite for you and your family.
