My wife’s grandmother was one of the most incredible people I have ever known. She loved to cook and after she passed the family put together a recipe book of her receits. She didn’t call them recipes she called them receits. Notice the different spelling. The one recipe that has become a tradition to Thanksgiving in our family is her sweet potatoe recipe. It’s simple, has pecans, and is great. If you would like a nice twist on sweet potatoes this Thanksgiving give Grandma Marconi’s recipe a try.Ingredients: Sweet Potatoes: 3 cups mashed sweet potatoes 1 stick of melted butter 1 cup of brown sugar 2 eggs beaten 3/4 tablespoon vanilla extract 1/4 tablespoon maple extract 1/2 cup of milk Toppings: 1 stick of melted butter 1 cup of brown sugar 1 cup of chopped pecans Directions: In caserole dish mix the sweet potatoes together. In seperate mixing bowl mix together the toppings. Spread the toppings over the top of the sweet potatoes. Place in oven at 350 degrees for 35 minutes. Happy Thanksgiving. We all have so much to be thankful for !!!!
