    LaLa's Note:

    Made in my house for every family gathering and holiday. Possibly the most delicious thing you'll EVER eat--even if you don't like yams, which I don't.

    1. 1
      In a skillet, brown the pecans (can also be done in the oven).

      In a big pot, boil the yams for 12 minutes with water just covering them.
    3. 3
      After 12 minutes, drain the water and replace with ice cold water to stop the cooking--peel and slice the potatoes.
    4. 4
      In a big pan melt the brown sugar and butter together until saucy.
    5. 5
      Add the bourbon and heavy cream, blend together.
    6. 6
      Add the sliced potatoes to the pan and mix around with the sauce.
    7. 7
      Add the pecans and mix together while heating for a little bit, but not to cook the potatoes completely.
    8. 8
      Pour everything into a casserole dish and heat in the oven at 375° for 25 minutes or until potatoes are cooked.
