recipe share - sweet potato puff

I wanted to make sure I posted this recipe before we totally leave the month of November behind. I have never been a sweet potato fan until I tasted this little dish. This dish screams Fall/Thanksgiving. I made it for the first time, this year to take to Thanksgiving dinner at my in laws. If I am not mistaken, I believe my Mom got this one from one of her best friends, Kathy Clark. Thanks for sharing it, Mom & Kathy!

Sweet Potato Puff

4-5 Large sweet potatoes (bake them until they are tender)
3 c. mashed sweet potatoes (the ones you have just baked)
1/2 c. sugar
1/3 c. milk
1/2 c. melted butter
2 beaten eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 c. coconut

1/2 c. packed brown sugar
2 TBS. melted butter
1/4 c. flour
1/2 c. pecans

Bake sweet potatos in oven until tender. Mash/mix as you would regular mashed potatoes.
Mix sweet potatos, sugar, milk, butter, eggs, and vanilla until fluffy. Stir in your coconut.
In a buttered casserole dish, pour sweet potato mixture in.

With a fork, stir topping ingredients: brown sugar, melted butter, flour, and pecans. Sprinkle over sweet potato mixture & bake for 35 minutes at 350 degrees.

I'll have to try this one. I'm still looking for a sweet potato recipe I really like. I might have to put marshmallows on top in stead :)
