This is almost the same as my recipe,it varies in sugar and butter amount. For 3 cups sweet potatoes, I use 3 small cans of Taylor brand. I like to heat them up a bit for easier mixing in the microwave just until warm (but not necesary). Add 1/4-1/2 cup sugar, 2 eggs, 1/3 cup butter at room temperature, but can use right out of frige if potatoes are warm. Also add 1 tsp. vanilla ext. and 1tsp. salt.( no liquids.) Blend in mixer till smooth. Topping: 1/2 c. melted margarine, 1/2-3/4 c. brown sugar(light) Depending on how sweet you want it,and 1 c chopped nuts. I put in a 10 inch deep dish pie plate,(not necesary to grease dish) Bake 350 for 25 min. Everyone loves this dish. My kids won't touch sweet potatoes, so I don't know how kid freindly this is, but anyone who likes sweet potatoes and nuts will love this. It is a sweet vegetable and like a dessert, but I would never serve as a dessert. There are different versions of this recipe, you can't really go wrong with them. Thanks Cindy!
