Thanksgiving Sweet Potatoes

I spent a good portion of my life not even touching yams or sweet potatoes at Thanksgiving. 
They just didn't seem to matter with ALL the other goodness available
...until a few years ago...
I decided to try a new recipe. Even still, I didn't put them on my plate until I heard for the 4th time that Thanksgiving that they were amazing and so I gave in. 
...and they changed my Thanksgiving dinner for life. 

4 sweet potatoes
1 cup of sugar
1 cup half and half
2 eggs
1 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1/3 cup butter
1/2 cup flour
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup chopped pecans

Bake sweet potatoes, scrape the insides into a bowl, and mash them with white sugar, half and half, eggs, salt & vanilla.
Place mixture in greased casserole dish
Then cut butter, flour, brown sugar & pecans until a crumbly topping is formed.
Sprinkle on top of sweet potato mixture
Bake at 400 for 30 minutes
*can make ahead and refrigerate*
