{ Kitchen Kreative }

Part of my joy is being -creative- in the kitchen as well as my stamping area.
Sweet potato casserole is part of our family holiday side dishes... we refer to as
legalized dessert!

Even the pickiest of eaters can't resist the temptation for "dessert" with
dinner... { wink } My apologies if you came looking for a paper creation. Personally, I find diversified blogs more interesting. What say you?

Sweet Potato Casserole -

5lbs. sweet potatoes - boiled & mashed

3 large eggs
1/2 C. sugar
2/3 C. melted butter
1/3 C. heavy cream
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. nutmeg { 3/4 tsp. for us }
1/2 tsp. allspice { + a smidge for us }

Beat the eggs and stir in potatoes. Add remaining ingredients and mix well. Spread into GREASED shallow baking dish. Approx. 13 X 9 pan. { vintage pie plates for us }

Topping -

1 C. brown sugar
1/3 C. flour
1 C. chopped pecans
1/3 C. butter or margarine { broken into small pcs. }

Blend the topping mixture with fork or hand. Sprinkle over the top of potato mixture.
Bake approx. 60 to 70 minutes in a 350 degree oven.

T-GOD-IF! Today finds me thanking our good Lord for a much needed school vacation for rest and regrouping the soul.

Thank-you for the "windowsill" visit while the sweet potato casserole cooled.
If your in the area... stop by for a visit... we'd love to see you!

WOW this sounds gorgeous and I need some recipes for our new found love of sweet potatoes. I just wonder if heavy cream is the same as the double cream we have over here.......I can but try it.
