These are adapted from an old recipe...you could roll them in coconut instead of nuts like Grandma did, but my hubby hates coconut so I changed it to pecans for us! Prep time doesn't include pre-mashing the potatoes since I do that a day ahead.

I tried these instead of the sweet potatoes I usually make for the holidays. I did half in nuts and half in coconut. My family kind of looked at me funny when I told them what they were, but the ones who tried them said they were good.
