AIMEE'S WHIPPED SWEET POTATO SALAD

My Mom recently made this for a family reunion and she put crushed Ginger Snaps on top, to make it more of a sweet treat.  This can be a dessert dish or a side dish.  Another great one from my Great-Aunt Earlene!

  • 3 sweet potatoes, baked, cooled and mashed, OR 1 (20 ounce) can sweet potatoes, drained and mashed
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • sugar to taste (maybe 1 Tablespoon)
  • 1 (8 ounce) carton frozen whipped topping, thawed

Mix all ingredients together.  Refrigerate until ready to serve.  *Crushed Ginger Snaps on top is optional.
