Good Intentions and Even Better Food

I am going to try to redeem myself for missing a day in the 30 in 30 posting challenge.

I have had many requests for this recipe, so I'm going to share it with everyone. I originally got it from my friend Genn who told me it was "way better" than my yams with marshmallows. I didn't believe her, but she was right! Since then, I have altered it a little, I think it's even better now.

I serve these every year for the holidays and I make everyone try them. Even people who tell me they hate yams usually come back for more! Enjoy!

Holiday Yams

1 large can yams
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup melted butter
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs

Whip preceding ingredients together and spoon into an 8x8 casserole. Mix topping and spoon topping over yam mixture. Bake at 350* for 35 minutes.

Topping:
1/3 cup flour
1 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup butter
Pecans (optional, but awesome!)
Flaked Coconut (I don't believe this is optional--you decide.)

Note: I use the pecans and the coconut every time! YUM!

Let me know if you make these, if you changed them, and if everyone liked them! I'd love to hear back from you!!!
