6 oranges
3 cups cooked, mashed sweet potatoes
1 cup white sugar
1/4 cup orange juice
2 eggs - lightly beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup butter, softened - divided
1 tablespoon grated orange peel
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon all-purpose flour
1 cup chopped pecans


Start off by cutting the tops off the oranges, about half an inch off the top should do nicely. Scoop out the flesh of the orange leaving a nice shell to fill up. In a mixing bowl mix up the sweet potatoes, orange juice, eggs, vanilla extract, 1/2 cup butter and the grated orange peel. Fill up the orange shells with the mixture and put them in a deep casserole dish to hold them up. That was the easy part; now let's really get into the work. In a small pan combine remaining butter (1/2 cup) with brown sugar, flour and pecans. Cook this until the sugar dissolves. Spoon sugary pecan mixture over the filled oranges. Fill casserole dish with about 1/2 inch of water in the bottom to help the cooking process and prevent burnt orange shells. Bake at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes.
