These are heavenly good, but simple to make. If you make it once, you'll forever be expected to provide them for future holidays....you've been warned! ;-)

Ingredients

5
large yams or sweet potatoes
1/3 c
milk
1/2 c
butter, softened
1/2 c
heavy cream
1 c
brown sugar (light or dark)
1/2 c
sugar
2
eggs, beaten
1/3 c
melted butter
1 1/2 tsp
vanilla extract
1 c
pecans, chopped

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Wash sweet potatoes (or yams) well and place in oven for 35-40 minutes. Allow to cool until you can handle them comfortably. Cut them in half and scoop the insides into a large bowl. Mash. (This should yield about 3 cups.)
2
Mix the softened butter, along with the sugar, eggs, vanilla and milk into the sweet potatoes. Transfer to a baking pan or casserole dish.
3
Place cream in a small saucepan and bring to a simmer.
Add brown sugar and allow to dissolve. Stir until this mixture reaches the soft ball temp on a candy thermometer. Remove from heat.
4
Beat remaining butter and chopped pecans into cream mixture. Once it is well combined, pour over top of mashed sweet potatoes. Bake until hot and just beginning to brown.
