This is a recipe from my sister Sandy. I remember it to be a yummy treat that we shared on Thanksgiving one year. The best thing is — it is so simple!
Preheat the oven at 375 degrees
- 1 stick melted butter
- 3 cups yams, mashed (1 large can is fine if your do not have fresh ones)
- 1 cup sugar
- ¼ cup milk
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
Mix above ingredients with electric mixer. Place in baking dish. Top with Crumble Topping, below:
- 1 cup chopped nuts
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup flour
- 1 stick melted butter (NOT margarine)
Mix well with fork and crumble over potatoes. Bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes.
I will try using room temperature softened butter in base mixture. I think the butter may be easier to incorporate this way.
Additionally I plan to cut the butter used for the topping into cubes and make the mixture in a food processor. I think this will give the topping a crumbier consistency.
