ORIGINALLY POSTED NOVEMBER 22, 2011:
Who is MaryLou, you ask? She’s my mother-in-law and she makes the best sweet potato casserole EVER!! She knows how much I love it, and even if it’s NOT Thanksgiving, she’s often made it when we visit. I am always sure to sit myself next to the Sweet Potato Casserole at the table, whenever she makes it.
Since 450 miles is a LONG way to go for a bite of her casserole, she let me have the recipe in November 2004. I am now sharing it with you. You are very lucky. 🙂
3 cups sweet potatoes boiled and mashed
1 cup sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla
1/2 cup margarine
Mix thoroughly and pour into buttered casserole dish.
1 cup light brown sugar packed
1/2 cup flour
1 cup chopped pecans (this is a 6oz. pkg. halved pecans or so my notes say)
1/2 cup margarine melted
Mix with fork and sprinkle on top
Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes
“Sit down and enjoy!”
