   SWEET POTATOES WITH PRALINES Preheat oven to 350F.
   
   Peel and boil sweet potatoes in a covered saucepan until tender - about 20
   min. Drain and mash. Mix in the softened butter, sugar, vanilla, and milk.
   Pour into a baking dish or casserole.
   
   Bring cream to simmer in a small saucepan. Add brown sugar and stir until
   dissolved. Cook over medium heat to soft ball stage - 235F. Remove from
   heat and beat in butter and pecans. Pour over sweet potato mixture.
   
   All of the above may be done up to 2 days in advance and stored in the
   fridge. Then just heat in the oven until bubbling hot and enjoy.
