This is an old recipe that I tweaked ever so slightly. The topping is delicious. The old recipe used to call for Corn Flakes, 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.

Sweet potato casserole is a delicious side dish for Thanksgiving or Christmas. This easy recipe is sweet and savory. Many sweet potato casseroles have a marshmallow topping, but not this one. Brown sugar, butter, and pecans are combined for the perfect topping. It caramelizes while baking and really makes the dish.
Grease a 2 quart baking dish and pour sweet potatoes into the baking dish.
Prepare the topping. In a small pan, melt 2 tablespoons of butter over low heat.
Add brown sugar, nuts, and flour to butter mixture. Stir.
Then add 2 tablespoons of water.
Spread topping on top of the sweet potato mixture.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
