Lighter Whipped Candied Brandied Yams With Pecans

“Entered for safe-keeping. From Evelyn Tribole's "More Healthier Homestyle Cooking." This version reduces the amount of brown sugar and brandy, uses egg whites in place of whole eggs, and eliminates butter in the yam mixture. Note that Splenda Brown Sugar Blend for Baking may be substituted for the brown sugar, but you will need only half as much.”
