We had an awesome "Pre-Thanksgiving" dinner with our friends. All of my friends are going there own way for the holiday so we thought we'd get together for some food & it was SO GOOD! I was asked to share my sweet potatoes recipe- yummy, yummy (so good it was like a dessert)!

1 cup half & half
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp salt

1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 tsp salt
2 tbs chilled butter (cut up)
1/2 cup chopped pecans toasted

1. Preheat oven 375 degrees
2. Boil potatoes until soft (I brought it too a boil & tunred it to medium for 20 min or so). Cool & then peel.
3. Put potatoes in bowl, addhalf & half, 3/4 cup sugar, 1 tsp salt & vanilla.. Beat with mixer until smooth. Add eggss & beat again. scrap mix into 13 X 9 pan (sprayed with pam)
4. For topping sprinkle marchmellows over top. Then mix flour, sugar, salt in a bowl (I added cinnimon b/c I love it but not everyon eloves it like me!).
