This always gets rave reviews when I make it for the holidays. You'd think it was a dessert if you didn't know better.

- 6 cups sweet potatoes, mashed
- 2⁄3 cup sugar
- 2⁄3 cup butter, melted
- 1⁄3 cup heavy cream
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1⁄2 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1⁄2 teaspoon allspice
- 1 cup light brown sugar, packed
- 1⁄3 cup flour
- 1 cup chopped pecans
- 1⁄3 cup butter, softened
- Beat eggs, stir in potatoes until blended. Add remaining ingredients and put in buttered dish (9 x 13).
- Mix brown sugar, flour and nuts together. Work butter iinto mixture with hands until well blended. Sprinkle on top of potatoes and bake at 350 for 1 hour.
This is very similar to the sweet potato dish at Ruth Criss Steakhouse, which is actually why I looked it up since it was so good. I found it easy to prepare. My husband requested this dish for Thanksgiving this year!
