1/2 Cup Brown Sugar (if you like it sweeter, add another 1/2 cup)
Sweet Potato Mixture:
3 Cups Mashed Sweet Potatoes (about 4 sweet potatoes)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup half and half (or evaporated milk)
For the topping, combine the brown sugar, flour, nuts and melted butter in a mixing bowl and mix until combined and crumbly.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Combine the sweet potatoes, sugar, salt, vanilla, eggs, milk and butter in a mixing bowl and mix well (You could also do this in the food processor instead of mashing your sweet potatoes). Pour the sweet potato mixture into a buttered baking dish. Sprinkle the top with the nut mixture. Bake for 30 minutes. It's best if you let it sit for 30 minutes before serving. Serves 8.
