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.
