Then you wont have to crush them yourself like i did for you guys. ok back to the small mixing bowl, add the brown sugar and make sure you press the suagr down in the measering cup to get a full cup. Then add the half cup flour to the bowl the next step is to smash your pecans or if you already have them smashed measure out a full cup and add to the bowl also. finally add the melted of soft butter to the bowl and mix untill all the ingreadiants are crumbled and covered with a light butter coat. setting your pan or pans out crummble the topping over the top of the yam mixture untill fully covered.
