Pointers: <br/>1. Use a 4 qt slow cooker; (2 1/2 qt is NOT "close enough").<br/>2. Use a slow cooker liner!! ALWAYS!!<br/>3. Set aside the flour mixture in step 2. I used the mixing bowl and added the butter and <br/> sweet potato to it all at once so when it came to "gradually beat in the flour mixture", it <br/> was too late!! <br/>4. Microwave the dulce de leche to make it 'spreadable'. <br/><br/>I only followed #2 and it was a disaster, but I'm willing to give it a try again!!
