Combine:
3+ cups sweet potatoes-mashed
2 eggs (beaten)
1/2 c canned milk

1/2 stick butter melted
coconut flakes- (optional-but really yummy)
Topping:
1 c brown sugar
1 c chopped sugar coated pecans*
1/2 c flour

*to make sugar coated pecans, mix 1 cup chopped pecans with 1/4 cup sugar in a sauce pan over medium-low heat. stir constantly until all the sugar is melted & all nuts are coated. transfer to waxed or parchment paper. cool completely.

hey jenny, thanks for the comment. use a 9 x 13 inch pan. & as far as the coconut goes... i use 1/2-1 cup. depending on who is coming. my little sis is not a huge coconut fan, so if she is coming i use a little less. hope that help! have a happy & yummy thanksgiving!!!!
