This recipe has been passed down from who knows where and it is the ONLY way my family including extended family will eat yams. They are FANTASTIC but beware they are not for the " Light Hearted" they are fattening!
3 cups cooked, mashed yams
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs well beaten
4 TBSP. melted butter ( I like to use a little less butter)
1/2 cup milk
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
Mix together in a mixing bowl and pour into a 9x13 baking dish
1 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup cornstarch or flour
1 cup chopped pecans
1/3 cup butter
Sprinkle on just before cooking. Bake 350* for 35-40 min. Serve warm.
I guarantee that this will become a family favorite with the young and old a like, Enjoy!
