EASY CANDIED YAMS

4 cans (29-oz each) cut yams, well drained
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar*
1/2 stick butter, melted
1 tbsp vanilla extract
1 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
12 large marshmallows, if desired

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Lightly spray a 9 x 13-inch baking dish or pan with nonstick cooking spray.

Arrange the well drained yams in the bottom of the prepared dish or pan.  Sprinkle the brown sugar evenly over the yams.

Combine the melted butter, vanilla extract and the cinnamon; drizzle over all. 

Bake the uncovered yams for 20 minutes at 425 degrees.  Sprinkle the marshmallows over the yams and bake another 5 minutes to brown marshmallows.

Remove from oven and let stand for 10 minutes before serving.

Yield: 10-12 servings.

For diabetics or anyone watching their sugar intake, you can substitute 2/3 cup Splenda Brown Sugar Blend.
