This is an excellent recipe, provided that you cut every ingredient in half EXCEPT the sweet potatoes. Otherwise, it is way too sweet and way too rich. You will also find that half the topping is sufficient. This recipe is known as Senator Russell's Sweet Potatoes in a Taste of the South cookbook my mother has. I like to add a little orange juice and grated orange grind to give it taste beyond just "sweet." Thank you for posting!
