My Aunt Laurie makes this every year for Thanksgiving. It's what made me love sweet potatoes. The topping can be changed. This reheats very well. It's a family favorite! I hope you love it too!!!

(In the pictures below I made the recipe without the coconut, because my son Logan doesn't like it and without the pecans because my daughter Jamie has braces and can't eat them!)
