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.

Nice "ible"  my family LOVES sweet potato pie and not just for holidays, it's the dessert of choice for every gathering except birthdays. My daughter always makes it so Im not real sure of the recipe, it's close to yours except she uses pumpkin pie spice and jack danials. Sometimes she use's plain pecans, sometimes pretoasted or candied. We're fortunate that my other daughter has pecan trees on her georgia farm = )  If you use fresh sweet potatos (yams) baked until soft the results is much sweeter than the canned so you can cut way back on the refined sugar or go REALLY old school and use molasses... Thanks for getting my salavating glands started ! ! ! !
