Thanksgiving Praline Yams
Peel and slice the yams into quarter inch slices.
Place it in a steamer and cook until it is fork tender.
In mixing bowl with the beater, beat yams until smooth.
Mix in orange juice, peel, brandy, salt, ginger, 4 tablespoons of butter, 1/3 cup of brown sugar. Beat until mixture is light and fluffy.
Butter a 12-inch quiche dish or a shallow 2-quart casserole dish (7x11). Pour yam mixture in dish, smoothing top evenly.
Combine 2/3 cup of brown sugar, 1 stick of butter, pecan and cinnamon in a small bowl. Spread evenly over yams.
Bake at 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes or until golden brown and bubbly.
Remove from oven and let stand 10 minutes before serving.
If you double the recipe, make it in 2 separate casseroles so proportions of topping remain correct.
