The Best Day Ever

Sure you got your braces off, won a gold metal in the Olympics, proposed to the love of your life, birthed a child, were accepted to Dartmouth...but until you have my SWEET POTATOES, you can't officially say you have had the BEST DAY EVER! To help you along on the path to enlightenment, I am finally revealing the secret recipe....

1 pound can of Trappey's yams (in heavy syrup)
1 stick butter
2 eggs
1-1/2 cups sugar
3 tbsp flour
1 small can of evaporated milk
1 tsp lemon extract
1 tsp vanilla extract

Cover & simmer yams in syrup for 1 hour, drain. Whip with butter until fluffy, add remaining ingredients (again whip till fluffy). Put in greased 1 quart casserole dish & bake at 375 degrees for 1 hour . Add brown sugar & 1/2 cup pecans to top in the last few minutes of baking

I look forward to your THANK YOU note (for changing your life) in my mailbox!

I am glad you get as excited about food as I do but...I don't eat YAMS!

Mrs. Garlock,

That's a great recipe! Has it been in the family a long time? Can't wait to try it out next week when my parents come for Thanksgiving......
