Holiday Sweet Potato Bake
3 c. peeled sweet potatoes
1/3 tsp. salt
1 stick of butter
1 c. sugar ( can decrease to 3/4 cup)
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 c. heavy cream
1 c. packed brown sugar
1 c. pecans or walnuts
1/3 c. flour
5 T. melted butter
Cut the sweet taters in quarters and place in a large pot of boiling hot water until tender.Drain and let cool.
Meanwhile, make the topping. Mix all ingredients together and stir to mix well. After the taters have cooled, slide the peeling off. (By cooking the taters the skins will easily slide off.).
Grease a 2 qt. dish. Mash the potatoes well, with a hand mixer. Add the rest of the ingredients, except the cream and topping mixture and beat until smooth. Add the cream and mix. Add tater mixture to the greased dish. Sprinkle the topping over the potato mixture.
Bake for about 30-35 minutes…best if served warm.
