Sweet Potato Casserole

The BEST sweet potato casserole I've ever had comes from my brother-in-law's grandma in North Carolina, Grandma Gill.  Thank you Mimi for sharing your recipe with us!  If you usually don't like sweet potato casserole, I highly recommend you try this recipe and give sweet potato casserole One Last Chance!

2 cups mashed sweet potatoes
1/3 cup butter, melted
1 cup white sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
2 Tbsp. flour
Dash of cinnamon

1 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup flour
1/3 cup melted butter
1 cup brown sugar

 Pre heat your oven to 350 degrees.  Peel your sweet potatoes. Cut them up into big chunks.  Place sweet potato chunks in a pot with 8 cups of water on the stove and boil till soft.  Drain and mash them.  In a mixing bowl add 1/3 cup melted butter to the mashed sweet potatoes.  Stir in sugar and salt.  Beat in eggs, vanilla and flour.  Mix thoroughly.  Pour mixture into a greased 9x9 casserole dish.

For the topping mix all the ingredients together and sprinkle evenly over the sweet potato mix.  Bake at 350 degrees for 40 mins.  Enjoy!
