this is a family favorite for the holidays.... it has not missed a single thanksgiving dinner with our family since i was a little girl.

2 LB sweet potato
1/2 stick butter
1 CUP sugar
1/2 CUP evaporated milk
2 eggs
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon (to taste)

mix all ingredients until well blended and potatoes are fluffy. grease a baking dish and place sweet potatoes in to bake at 350* for 20 minutes.

in the meantime, prepare your topping
3/4 CUP frosted flakes
1/2 CUP brown sugar
1/2 stick butter
1/2 CUP pecans ( i do not use this because of allergies)

melt these ingredients over medium heat in a frying pan. combine well, until brown sugar is melted and frosted flakes are covered. once the sweet potatoes are done baking, pour topping over them and bake for another 15-20 minutes or until browned.
