Happy Thanksgiving & Sweet Potato Casserole
Thank you Jesus for all the blessings in my life! This year I am especially thankful for our baby boy that is on the way! At 30 weeks he's as healthy as can be, which is a relief after having two miscarriages. I am also thankful for my amazing husband putting up with a cranky pregnant wife!
I made this sweet potato casserole for our Thanksgiving celebrations. It's from my good friends, Janie and Phillip, thank you. It is a very sweet casserole, really, it's more like a dessert! Yum!
Sweet Potato Casserole
3 cups of mashed sweet potatoes
1 1/2 cups of white sugar
1 cup coconut flakes
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup of brown sugar
1 cup of broken pecans
1/2 cup flour
1/2 stick of margarine or butter
Mix the first 5 ingredients and pour in a casserole dish. Mix the first 3 ingredients of the topping and spread over the potatoes. Slice the margarine or butter in little pieces over the top. Bake at 300 degrees for 30 minutes or until golden brown. If you'd like the topping to be a little crispier, bake a little longer.
