3 cans (1 lb each) yams in light syrup, drained
1/2 C butter
1/2 C heavy cream
2 large eggs
1 C. firmly packed brown sugar
3/4 C. chopped pecans
1/4 t. cinnamon
1/4 t. nutmeg
1 t. vanilla
1/4 t. salt
6 orange "shells" (optional)
1/2 C. whole pecans for garnish
1/2 C. mini marshmallows for garnish

Preheat oven to 350. In food processor or manually, puree yams with 6 T. melted butter and 2 T. cream. Add eggs and 1/2 C. brown sugar; blend well. Spread mixture in shallow baking dish (or if using oranges, cut oranges in 1/2 and remove all the meat. Pour mixture into 12 orange shells). Place the orange shells in a shallow baking dish.
In a small saucepan, combine remaining butter, cream, brown sugar, pecans, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Bring to boil, simmer 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Spoon over the center of potato mixture. Bake 20 minutes or until bubbly. Garnish with pecan halves and mini marshmallows.

Personal Notes:
The orange halves give this dish a different flavor, and they are a cute container for the potatoes.
