Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, beat together first 6 ingredients. Pour into a lightly greased 9 x 13 or two 8 x 8 (or 9 x 9) baking pans.
  3. Use a pastry blender to cut butter into brown sugar and flour until crumbly. Mix in nuts. Sprinkle topping mixture over sweet potatoes.
