Another of my mother's recipes that I've added upon. These are incredible. Actually better the second day. Once I was out of pumpkin when making muffins and substituted these leftovers all mashed up and my husband and children who insist they don't like yams/sweet potatoes loved them. Choose long, skinny yams.
