A few of my Thanksgiving recipes!!

Since the hubby is deployed to Iraq this a group of us wives got togetether and we all made a little bit of the dinner. Here is what I made and brought. The sweet potatoes were a big hit because of how sweet they are. I can not stand marshmellows so I don' make them the traditional way.

In large bowl beat filling ingredients with mixer and pour into pan. Cover crust with strips of foil to avoid burning.
