The Pursuit of Sweet Potato Souffle

Someone reminded me of a recipe I made many years ago.  She loved it so much, she is still singing it's praises to people I work with.  I had totally forgotten about this dish.  I don't think I've made it in at least 7 years - but her insistence at me bringing it to a Thanksgiving get-together our office is planning sent me digging through my favorite cookbooks - this is Sundays at Moosewood Restaurant from 1990.  I also have a Cook's magazine from 1986 that I routinely use recipes from and my hand written recipe book circa 1980 prior to my first marriage 1981.  When discussing the Sweet Potato Souffle recipe with my friend, she talked of handwritten recipes from her grandma that she still uses but is sure no one will ever be able to decipher after her.  My friend is at least my age (49) but I think older. I'm a horrible judge of age. 

Anyway, this forgotten recipe will find it's place on my Thanksgiving Table this year.  Do you have a favorite recipe that you only make on Holidays?  Feel free to share here.
