Sweet Potato Casserole

So, these are notorious in my household…Honestly, I don’t know why people think these are so good! Like yea, they are great, but my family goes bonkers over this recipe. My secret ingredient is the cream of tartar… it makes them taste like a snickerdoodle cookie. This being said, don’t overdo the cream of tartar! Just add little sprinkles at a time. This is the first thing that goes at every family party and get together. So enjoy them!
