Thanks giving for Yams!


Ingredients:
3-3 1/2 Lbs Yams/Sweet Potatoes (you may substitute the canned variety here)
1 C. Sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 C. Melted butter
2 eggs (beaten nicely)

Topping:
1 C. brown sugar
1/2 C. melted butter
1/2 C. flour
1 C. chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350. Mix first batch of ingredients until smooth. Put in a buttered 9 X 13 casserole dish (The shallower the dish, the more crispy bits)
blend topping ingredients and sprinkle on top. Bake for 30 minutes.

Serves: only one if it's me!

I've had these before. They are so good! You can make them with chopped up sweet potatoes, too, instead of mashed.

Jenny, you make the yams, I'll bring a fork. I usually double the recipe and leave the second pan at my house. And only sometimes will I share with John.
