This is absolutely divine! Ruth has done it again! Note, the first time I made this I noticed there was a bit of extra liquid left over, next time I will adjust the amount of butter and/or add a bit more potato.

I watched the video for this recipe and the butter is mixed up. For the crust, it's 1/2 cup and for the sweet potato mixture, it's 1/4 cup. I simmered the sweet potatoes in their skins for about 30 minutes and then shocked them in ice water. The skins came right off. You don't want to put the crust mixture on before you bake. You bake the sweet potato mixture for 30 minutes and then add the crust mixture and bake for another 10 minutes. This is per the video and the chef's instructions. Had I not seen this, it would not have been so perfect! Watch the video before you make.

If you watch the video of the chef at Ruth's Chris demo this dish here: you'll note that in the video the chef adds 1 stick of melted butter to the crust and 1/3 stick of butter to the sweet potatoes. The printed recipe, propagated on the web, has these quantities reversed.

I made this for Thanksgiving and it was a HUGE hit! The best sweet potato casserole I ever had! The only change I made to the recipe is that I cut the sweet potato into wedges, drizzled them with olive oil and salt and baked them at 375 for an hour and then mashed them as the recipe instructs. You could take the "roasted" flavor from baking them and it was incredible!
