Ok so I live not that far from Gilmer Texas, home of yams which is why they have a Yamboree Celebration every year. Living here has made me really grow to love yams as well as sweet potatoes. No yams and sweet potatoes aren’t the same thing. Yams if not prepared right are actually poisioness. Yams are a lighter orange and sweet potatoes are a dark orange. Mashed sweet potatoes and spices lend unique flavor to this classic treat. The cheesecake is topped with pecans and a drizzle of maple-flavored syrup.
