Recipe by Sweet Diva MJ
Adapted from Taste of Home. It wouldn't be Thanksgiving or Christmas without the Sweet Potato Casserole as far as I'm concerned! I've adjusted some of the ingredient amounts to make a version that is a little less sweet than many I've tried.
- 4 cups mashed sweet potatoes (prepared without milk or butter)
- 3⁄4 cup sugar
- 1⁄2 cup milk
- 1⁄4 cup butter or 1⁄4 cup margarine, softened
- 3 eggs
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1⁄2 cup brown sugar, packed
- 1⁄2 cup shredded coconut
- 1⁄2 cup pecans, chopped
- 1⁄4 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons butter or 2 tablespoons margarine, cold
