Last year my daughter, Katie, brought this for Thanksgiving. And I was very happy that I am one of the few people in my family who actually LIKES sweet potatoes, because there was plenty of this amazing dish for me. I loved the addition of coconut to this traditional Thanksgiving fare!
Coconut-Sweet Potato Casserole

½ c. melted butter
1 tsp. vanilla
Mix together and put into a greased casserole dish.
1 c. pecan pieces
1 c. flaked coconut
1 c. brown sugar
⅓ c. flour
⅓ c. melted butter
Mix together and spread over the top of the sweet potato mixture.
Bake at 375 degrees for 25 minutes. Serve warm.
