Pecan Yam bake

This is from my sister, Shelli Larson. It is a Thanksgiving hit. Everyone wants to be sure somebody is bringing this dish. Why not have a little dessert on your plate, right next to the turkey, and before pie time?

3 c. cooked yams
1/4 c. sugar
1/4 c. butter, softened
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla

Turn oven on to 375°. In mixer, blend yams, sugar, butter, egg, and vanilla until smooth. Spread evenly in buttered 9 x 13 casserole dish.

1 c. brown sugar
1/3 c. flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 c. butter, softened
1 c. pecans

Mix sugar, flour, and salt in small mixing bowl. Cut in butter and mix in pecans. Sprinkle over top of yams. Bake for 30 minutes, or until knife in center comes out clean.

I added a little more to the yam bake this year after watching a cooking show....some eggs, milk, honey, and a pinch of cinnammon, nutmeg and cloves (tiny bit of of the latter)to the yams. We all loved it. You are so right..little Avery had 3 helpings! Of course, she thought it was dessert. Thanks, Shelli, for starting a great tradition. Great one to share, Kris.
