Sweet Potato Crisp

This is a family recipe from my husband's side of the family.  They make it every Thanksgiving and Christmas.

3-cups of cooked, mashed sweet potatoes (baked them for an hour OR peel, quarter and boil for 20 minutes or until tender) About 3 good sized potatoes work well.
1 1/4 cups sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup soft butter (1 4-oz stick)
3 eggs

1/2 cup soft butter (1 4-oz stick)
3 cups crushed cornflakes
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Beat the eggs until lemon colored.  Put potatoes, sugar, baking powder, vanilla, salt and butter into a big bowl and mix well.  Put the mixture into a buttered baking dish and bake for about 20 minutes or until set.  

While the potatoes are baking, make the topping.  Put everything into a bowl and mix well.

Remove potatoes from  oven and cover with topping.  Return to oven for about 15 minutes.    

Serves 4-6
