"This is a very good recipe, although I have another one we like a bit better. Definitely cut the brown sugar for the base and topping in half or it will be too sweet. I used 4 cups of fresh yams, boiled & mashed. You can make it a day ahead then bring to room temp and bake the next day. Really loved the topping."

I tripled the recipe but only doubled the sugar to 1 cup (any more would've been way too sweet). This will definitely be a new Thanksgiving staple."
