Pecans, Brown Sugar and Sweet Potatoes. YUM!

This is a pretty simple recipe, it's so simple that I'm sure someone else has already thought of it, however I just made it up.

Here's what you'll need:
3 large sweet potatoes
1/2 cube of butter
4 tablespoons brown sugar
1-2 cups of pecans
I made this recipe for my family of 4 
(2 adults and two kids under 3)

Wash, peel and chop sweet potatoes into bit sized pieces. 
    Put potatoes in a 9 by 13 inch pan. 
      Melt Butter and add 2 tablespoons of brown sugar. 
        Mix together and pour over potatoes. 
        Toss the potatoes around so the butter mixture is on every potato. 
        Sprinkle remaining brown sugar over all the potatoes.
        Bake at 350 for 45 -60 minutes. 
        Stir potatoes every 20 minutes.
        15 minutes before they come out of the oven, 
        add the pecans and mix. 
        Potatoes should be soft, 
        and look something like the picture above when done.
