Sweet Potato Casserole Recipe

I'm from the South and it would not be Thanksgiving in Alabama without my sweet potato casserole recipe. This recipe was handed down from my grandmother to my mother to me. Everyone always questions the amount of butter in the recipe, but they love it after they taste it. Submitted by Monica Craddock, Anniston, Alabama, USA
