Family Holiday Favorite

This is my version of my grandmother's recipe that I fix for
all family gatherings and for the holidays!

Sweet Potato Casserole

6 to 7 medium sized Sweet Potatoes
1 cup light brown sugar
2 eggs
6 Tbsp. melted butter
1 tsp. vanilla
2 tsp cinnamon (optional)


1 1/2 c. self rising flour
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup softened butter
pecans (optional)

To Make Casserole
Bake sweet potatoes at 350 until cooked through - about 1 hour. Let cool. Peel potatoes and place in electric mixer. Add brown sugar, melted butter, eggs, vanilla and cinnamon. Mix until completely incorporated. Pour into a 13X9 baking pan.

To Make Topping
Place self-rising flour, sugar and softened butter into mixing bowl. "Crumble" with your hand until butter is mixed through - will be crumbly, but should hold together when squeezed. Spread evenly over sweet potato casserole and top with pecans if desired. Bake at 350 20 to 30 minutes until golden brown.
Serve warm.
