    I thought this was awesome. I'm planning on making these for Thanksgiving dinner. I also used low-fat cream cheese and I Can't Believe It's Not Butter. - 10/19/08

    these were delicious! I used smart balance lite and reduced fat cream cheese. My almost 4 year old daughter loved it too! - 7/29/08

    These were great! I have made something like this before but without the cream cheese, that is a great addition. My daughter doesn't like sweet potatoes but she did like this! I will make these again to go with our x-mas dinner. - 12/3/09
