  1. Preheat an oven to 425 degrees F.

  2. Wrap each yam in aluminum foil, pierce all over with a fork and place on a baking sheet. Bake the yams until tender when pierced with a sharp knife, about 1 hour.

  3. Place sweet potatos in a sauce pan with enough water to cover. Cook on stovetop until you can pierce with a folk. So not over cook.

  4. In a bowl, combine the brown sugar, butter, nuts and spices. Using a fork, mix until coarse and crumbly.

  5. Lightly butter an 8-inch square baking dish. Place half of the yam slices in the prepared dish, arranging them in a single layer. Sprinkle evenly with half of the topping. Layer the remaining yam slices on top and sprinkle with the remaining topping. Place the baking dish on a baking sheet. Bake until the topping melts and is bubbling, 15-20 minutes.
