My neighbor Dale brought this dish to a Thanksgiving gathering at our codo complex. It was and still remains a BIG HIT. —joan511

was looking for a recipe to use up some leftover sweet potato. This was delicious! I added some cinnamon/clove/nutmeg to the cranberry mixture and coconut to the crumble topping. Very unique dessert. A keeper.

This *was* a huge hit! Thank you! I was looking for a recipe that would suit my traditional family but was a little more sophisticated than the canned sweet potatoes with marshmallows. Even those that didn't think they liked sweet potatoes were taken with the dish!
