I got this recipe from my niece who had served it at a family Thanksgiving get together a couple of years ago. I personally think these are the best sweet potatoes I've ever had. Definitly not low cal., but oh so delicious.


  1. Mix together mashed potatoes, butter, eggs, vanilla and pumpkin pie spice.
  2. Pour into a 9x13 baking dish.
  3. Mix together flour, butter, brown sugar and pecans and crumble over the top of the sweet potato mixture.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

This is also a recipe I have made for years. The 4 large sweet potatoes equal to about 3 C. MASHED. Also, we prefer to have *extra* praline topping, being from New ORleans, so we double the topping. I encourage everyone to try this! Your family will thank you!

I am so sorry about my earlier post, this is not the same recipe that I was used to. My daughter found a copy of the old cookbook I had and got it for me for Christmas. This is however a very tasty dish, I just liked the one I used to make better. I will try to post it soon.

I doubled the recipe and made this for a Thanksgiving potluck at work. It was just wonderful and very easy to make. I had several requests for the recipe.
