7 Points per serving

1 cup all-purpose flour
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup chopped pecans, toasted
1/4 cup light margarine (stick)
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 1/2 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled and halved

For extra flavor, the streusel is stirred into the casserole plus sprinkled on top.

Heat oven to 350 degrees F.

Combine first 5 ingredients in a small bowl, stirring to form a streusel. Set aside.

Place potatoes in a Dutch oven; add water to cover. Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat, and simmer 30 minutes or until very tender. Drain well; place in a large bowl, and mash. Stir in 1 cup streusel, granulated sugar, and next 3 ingredients. Spoon into a 2-quart casserole coated with cooking spray; top with remaining streusel. Bake at 350 degrees F for 45 minutes.
