Recipe by Celeste

A crisp gingersnap topping earns this Southern sweet potato casserole high marks. Purchase crisp gingersnap cookies rather than the soft variety for making the streusel.

All I can say is WOW! This is a fantastic sweet potato casserole! It smelled so good while cooking too! The streusel topping really sets this dish apart and makes it special. I will be bringing this to our family Thanksgiving dinner from now on - thanks for giving me a new holiday tradition!
