The apple/brown sugar topping was delicious, but I think next time I'll dredge the sweet potato slices in the brown sugar mixture before putting in the baking dish - the delicious topping didn't get down to the potatoes. Also, my daughter thought there was too much cinnamin, so I'll try reducing it and the pumpkin pie spice to to 1/4 teaspoon each and see how that works.
