This recipe was originally for two deep dish pies. But through the years, my children began leaving the crust and just ate the filling. After a few years of this (DUH) I decided why waste pie crust? Make the filling a casserole and let them enjoy!
Feel free to use a large casserole dish or two DEEP DISH pie crusts. This makes a lot, but don't worry, it won't last long.
2 cups of cooked, mashed sweet potatoes
1 stick butter, cubed
5 oz. evaporated milk
1 t. vanilla
3 eggs, slightly beaten
2 cups sugar
1 t. cinnamon
Mix ingredients together and pour into two deep dish pie crusts or a deep casserole dish. Cook at 350 degrees for 30 -35 minutes.
While baking, mix together the following:
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup flour
1/3 cup melted butter
1 cup chopped pecans
Sprinkle over top of casserole and return to oven for 10 - 12 minutes.
