Yam pecan pie recipe (1956)

Recipe #67: Yam Pecan Pie

Cream 1/4 cup butter with 1/4 cup brown sugar and dash salt, till fluffy.

Mash 1-1/4 cups cooked yams or 20 oz. canned yams, drained. Combine with 3 well-beaten eggs, 3/4 cup dark corn syrup, 1 teaspoon vanilla, and 1 cup pecan halves. Blend with butter-sugar mixture.

Pour into unbaked pastry shell. Bake in 375 F oven 50-55 minutes.

For best results, use Golden Moist Louisiana Yams. They look better, cook better, taste better. Always creamy, never stringy. Fresh or canned, they’re best in the land! Louisiana Golden Yams
