Sweet Potato Casserole

This is the sweetest, most delicious casserole you will make. It really should be a dessert. The topping is so perfect. I made this for my Thanksgiving dinner but I can see me making it again for dinner one night (I will just cut the recipe in half.) This would be great with any holiday meal or if you have to take a side.

Sweet Potato Casserole

4 medium sweet potatoes
1 c sugar
1 c milk
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp salt
1 c brown sugar
1 c pecans
1/2 c flour, all purpose
3/4 stick butter

1. Wash the sweet potatoes and bake them at 375 for about 30 to 35 minutes. (You will want to be able to insert a fork into them.)
2. Slice them open and scrape out flesh into a bowl.
3. Add granulated sugar, milk, eggs, vanilla, and salt. Mash up the sweet potatoes and mix in the ingredients. (Don't mash them too much.)
4. In a separate bowl, add brown sugar, pecans (take 1 c of pecans and chop them), flour, and butter. With pastry cutter or forks, mash them together until combined.
5. Spread the sweet potato mix into a 9 x 13 baking dish and sprinkle the crumble mixture on top.
6. Bake in a 400 degree oven for 30 minutes, or until golden brown.

This get better over night (it's hard to believe)
If you are making it for a dinner, you can make the everything and wait to bake it until the day you need it.
