Sweet Potato Casserole

Let's begin with this: I hate sweet potatoes. I had only ever eaten them one time willingly when my Aunt Lisa had made her casserole. Then last Thanksgiving, I watched my friend Jaime make hers and she told me that I had to try it. I did and I fell in love. This will be made for years and years to come :)

What you need:
  • 2 (29 oz.) cans yams
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 2/3 cup flour
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 cup butter (softened)
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/3 cup butter (softened)
  • 1 cup chopped nuts (I had to leave out because of my son's allergies)

Mix all ingredients (except topping) together.

Mmmm! Spread into a greased 9x13-inch dish (or a casserole dish) and bake at 375 for 35 to 40 minutes.

Meanwhile mix topping ingredients with fingers. Take dish out of the oven and add topping. bake for 15 minutes more.
