Cut the unpeeled yams into thirds and cook in boiling salted water until tender.
Drain, rinse under cool water, and peel.
Place the yams in a greased shallow casserole dish.
In a small saucepan melt butter, then stir in the cinnamon and vanilla.
Pour over the yams and sprinkle with brown sugar.
Bake until the syrup caramelizes, about 25 to 30 minutes.
