Whipped Sweet Potatoes with Crumb Topping

2 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled, cut into 1-inch pieces
6 tablespoons butter, softened
1 large egg
6 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/4 teaspoon salt
Topping (recipe follows)

Preheat oven to 400*F (205*C). Grease a 8 x 8-inch baking dish; set aside.

Cook sweet potatoes in large pot of boiling water until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain; transfer potatoes to large bowl and add butter.
Using electric mixer, beat until smooth. Add egg, sugar, spice and salt; beat to blend. Transfer mixture to prepared baking dish.

Bake potatoes until beginning to brown around edges and slightly puffed, about 25 minutes.

Prepare Topping:

1 1/2 cups corn flakes, crushed
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup chopped pecans
6 tablespoons butter, melted

Mix together all ingredients in medium bowl. Spoon topping evenly over potatoes. Bake until golden brown and crisp, about 10 minutes longer.

Serves 6.
