This is an old recipe that I tweeked ever so slightly. The topping is delicious. The old recipe used to call for cornflakes, but I modified the topping to a more caramel -like topping that comes out sweet and delicate. This has a pudding- like texture and would be great topped with some Cool Whip.
Pudding: Mix potatoes, melted butter, milk, sugar, eggs, spices and flavoring well, and pour into greased 2 quart baking dish. Spread topping over mixture. See recipe below: Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
Topping: In a small pan melt 2 tablespoons of butter over low heat. Add brown sugar, nuts and flour to butter mixture. Stir and then add 2 tablespoons of water. Spread over top of potato mixture.
