3 (40-oz.) or 4 (29-oz.) cans cut yams, well drained (we tested with Sugary Sam sweet potatoes in syrup)
1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 tablespoon vanilla extract or vanilla bean paste
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
12 large marshmallows (optional)
How to Make It
Arrange yams in a lightly greased 13" x 9" baking dish. Sprinkle brown sugar over yams. Combine butter and next 2 ingredients. Drizzle over yams. Bake, uncovered, at 425° for 20 minutes. Sprinkle marshmallows over yams, if desired, and bake 5 more minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
