Got this at and thought that I'd try it this year.

4 pounds yams
2 eggs
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground allspice
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
6 ounces pecan halves
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup melted butter

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

Poke yams in several places with a fork, then cook them on high power in microwave oven until heated through and soft, about 20 minutes. When cooled, remove skins and place the yams in a large bowl.

Beat yams until smooth. Then beat in one egg at a time, blending after each addition. Stir in 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1/8 cup melted butter, salt, cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg; beat until the mixture is light and fluffy.

Transfer mixture to an ungreased 3 quart casserole dish. Arrange the pecans in a single layer on top. Sprinkle with remaining brown sugar and drizzle 1/4 cup melted butter over the top.

Bake for 25 minutes in the preheated oven, or until browned and bubbly.

This are really good cookies with recipes from here. They reminded me of Mexican wedding cookies.

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
3/4 cup powdered sugar, plus more for dusting
2 teaspoons lemon juice
Grated peel of 1 lemon (about 1 1/2 teaspoons)

Stir together flour and salt in a medium bowl. Beat butter and 3/4 cup powdered sugar with mixer at medium speed until flufy. Beat in lemon juice and lemon peel until blended.

Add the flour and salt mixture in 1/2 cup intervals but beating just until blended.

Bake for 20-25 minutes in a 300 degree oven or until cookies are lightly browned on the bottom. Cool on cookie sheets for 5 minutes before moving to a wire rack to cool completely.

Sprinkle with powdered sugar to get a beautifully elegant look!
