Directions:
Preheat oven to 350. Pierce each potato several times with fork and place in a baking pan. Bake until potatoes are tender, 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 hrs. Set aside until cool enough to handle.
In small saucepan, heat the milk and butter until the butter has melted and the mixture is hot but not boiling. Cut the potatoes in half, and scoop the flesh into a large bowl, discarding the skins. Mash the potatoes. Stir the milk mixture into the potatoes. Whisk in the eggs and continue whisking until well combined with the potato mixture. Add the brown sugar and stir until thoroughly blended. Butter a 9-by-13 inch pan, or an 11- inch round casserole dish. Spread the sweet potato mixture evenly in pan. Set aside while making the topping . Increase oven temperature to 375.

Topping:

Melt butter in saucepan over low heat. Stir in next 5 ingredients. Heat to simmer, and cook, stirring constantly, until sugar has dissolved and mixture is thick, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Pour topping over sweet potatoes.
Bake approximately 30 minutes.
