.Scrub and peel sweet -potatoes. 
Cut off and discard woody portions and ends.
 Cut potatoes into cubes. Cook, covered, in a small amount 
of boiling water for 25 to 30 minutes 
or till tender. Drain.


Combine hot sweet potatoes, 
granulated sugar, milk, egg, 
the 3 tablespoons butter,oj and vanilla. 
I usually temper the hot sweet potatoes
 into the egg mixture so the eggs don't cook.



 With a wooden spoon, stir to break up potatoes 
but not completely mash them. 
Put mixture into a greased 2- quart 
square baking dish. 


Combine brown sugar and flour; 
cut in the 2 tablespoons butter till mixture. 
resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in pecan pieces


 
and sprinkle crumb mixture on top of potatoes.


 Bake, uncovered, in a 350 degree oven about 
25 minutes, or till set. Garnish with 
pecan halves, if desired.
 Makes 8 side-dish servings. ,
