I made this for Christmas dinner, and it was the best Sweet Potato dish I've ever had. My father-in-law (who loves sweet potatoes) said the topping tasted like candy, and he had triple helpings. It was wonderful!

Yum! I made minor changes (soy milk, egg replacer & vegan butter) with great success. I also did half of the topping with almonds (for DH). It was good; sort of like a toffee. I'll stick with pecans. Thanks for a great recipe!
