Coconut Yams

This is a family favorite for the Holidays! It is so sweet that it should probably really be a dessert.

4 cups of mashed yams (4-5 baked yams mashed or use canned)
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup milk
1/3 cup butter, sliced
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
1/2 tsp salt

Mix the above ingredients together (Now you can see why they are so good) and put in a 9x13 baking dish.

1 cup coconut
1 cup chopped nuts (I use Pecans)
1 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup melted butter
1/3 cup flour

Melt butter, stir in remaining ingredients. Add to top of yams

Bake at 375 for 35 minutes.
