Ingredients

  • 5 large sweet potatoes try to get potatoes that are all similar size. they will bake more evenly and be done at the same time that way
  • 1/2 cup melted unsalted butter divided in two bowls
  • 1 tsp. orange zest packed
  • 3/4 tsp. salt divided in two bowls
  • 3/4 cup Pecan Halves chopped

Instructions

  • while the potatoes are in the oven, combine the pecans, flour, sugars, oatmeal, cinnamon and 1/4 tsp. salt. Stir to blend. Mix in 1/4 cup butter. The topping should form sandy clumps. Refrigerate.
  • after potatoes are baked, slice the potatoes in half lengthwise and scoop out some of the flesh inside. be sure to leave at least 1/4 inch insides in tact, to keep the form of the potato. Arrange the halves on a baking sheet.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the sweet potato filling with the remaining 1/4 cup butter, orange zest and 1/2 tsp. salt. Spoon the filling back into each potato half
  • top with the topping mixture. Place the tray in the center of the oven and bake at 375F until the topping browns, 15-20 minutes. cut in half if desired. Serve immediately.
