"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Directions:
Place mashed sweet potatoes in large bowl. Add sugars, milk, eggs, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and 3 T of the butter. Stir well. Pour into a greased casserole.

The topping is made as follows-
Combine remaining butter sugar and flour. Mix well. Sprinkle over potatoes. Bake at 350F for about 35-40 minutes.

This can be made ahead a day or two. Don't add the topping. Usually I cover the potatoes with foil, put the topping in a zip-lock and tape the bag to the top of the casserole and refrigerate. When ready to cook, remove foil and sprinkle topping on just before cooking.
