Sweet Potatoes are a favorite of mine. I don't care if they are mashed, smashed, glazed, baked, or roasted. I love them all. Although, I have never really had that all time "favorite" go to recipe. That is, until now.
For Thanksgiving, I decided to make Pioneer Woman's Soul Sweet Potatoes, and I am so glad I did!!!! This will now be my "go to" recipe when I want sweet potatoes. Everyone loved them, and I think you will too.
4 Sweet Potatoes 1 cup sugar 1 cup Milk 2 eggs 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract 1 teaspoon Salt 1 cup Brown Sugar 1 cup Pecans 1/2 cups Flour 3/4 stick of Butter
Wash 4 medium sweet potatoes and bake them in a 400 degree for one hour. When they are cool, slice them open and scoop the flesh into a large bowl.
Add 1 cup of sugar, 1 cup of milk, 2 eggs, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract and 1 teaspoon of salt. With a potato masher, mash them until mixture is smooth.
In a separate bowl, add 1 cup brown sugar, 1 cup pecans, chopped, 1/2 cup flour, and 3/4 stick of butter. With a pastry cutter or fork, mash together until thoroughly combined.
Spread the sweet potato mixture into a greased baking dish and sprinkle the crumb mixture over the top.
Bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes until golden brown.
