Bourbon Yams With Pecan Topping

Recipe by Lighthouse Rita

I have made this recipe for years, especially during the holidays. It has always been a hit. The pecan topping really makes the recipe. Everyone always, and I mean always asks for the recipe. Remember the last four ingredients are for the topping and not to be put into the dish.
