Sweet Potato Crisp

My not-too-sweet potato crisp features a wonderful buttery crumb topping. This is a welcome change from candied sweet potatoes.—Kathy Hamsher, Moon Township, Pennsylvania

    This sweet potato dish is amazing! I am always looking for recipies with sweet potatoes; particularly those that don't contain sugar shock. I didn't have to modify this at all. It was sweet enough with just the topping. I used frozen cranberries and they weren't too tart. All of my family liked this all my boys and my super picky husband, which is saying something. Definately will be making this again.
