“This is the famous Ruth Chris Sweet Potato Casserole recipe, with a couple of changes I made based on online reviews of other versions posted, namely the amounts of butter in the crust and mixture, and I sub 1/2 cup brown sugar for 1 cup of white sugar in the original recipe. Everyone who has ever tasted this goes crazy for it!”
