Dessert is to be determined, last year was pecan pie, and pumpkin spice cheesecake.

There will only be 3-4 of us, but I cook a lot and everyone gets leftovers!

My partner's father use to make these for every holiday, he has passed, so I carry on the tradition. Nothing fancy but very tasty.

40 oz. can cut yams, drained (any brand will do)

1/2 c. chopped pecans
1/2 c. coconut (optional)
1/2 c. firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 c. flour
1/4 c. butter, melted

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Place yams in ungreased 2 quart casserole or baking dish (Cutting up any larger pieces). In small bowl combine remaining ingredients, blend well. Sprinkle over yams. Bake 30 minutes or until bubbly, and top is crunchy.

Are canned yams just stored in water? I've been hesitant to use them but it seems easier than slicing and cooking them myself. Do they taste the same?

Mrs. C: Many canned yams are packed in syrup. Be sure to read the labels carefully if you want to avoid them. I have used them in the past, but I really don't like them as well as starting from fresh. I think my pies taste better -- even tho I cook the sweets and mash them.

I can understand that because you can adjust the taste to your liking. I will have to try it out and see what I think. Thanks for the help!
