I made these for Thanksgiving. The texture is like a fluffy mashed potato, but they taste almost like pumpkin pie. All 6 of us ate them, which really says something!
1 lg can yams (Canned, I know.... but it turned out great)
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 T melted butter
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1/8 tsp cloves
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup melted butter
Drain yams. In the mixer, beat yams until smooth. Continue beating, adding one egg at a time, then the brown sugar, butter, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. Beat until light and fluffy.
Place in a casserole dish. Arrange pecans on top. Sprinkle with brown sugar and drizzle with melted butter. Bake at 375 for 25 minutes.
