This is a recipe from my friend Kim Engle (December 2002)
2 lbs canned sweet potatoes, drained
1 stick butter
2 eggs, beaten
2-1/2 shots of Amaretto Liquor
1/4 c. sugar
1/2 c. pecans
1/2 stick butter
1/2 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. flour
Combine toppings into a food processor and process until pecans are chopped fine.
In a pot, add the potatoes and mash until smooth. Add the butter, eggs, amaretto and sugar. Mix well. Place in a buttered 9" square baking dish. Top with the pecan mixture.
Bake at 350 degrees until bubbly, about 35 minutes.
