Everyone in my family LOVED these! Next time I make them, I am going to finely crush the walnuts (I used walnuts instead of pecans) and add more walnuts and raisins and brown sugar. Also, I microwaved the sweet potatoes first, then just put the toppings on top, instead of scooping out the insides, then bake it for the remaining 15 minutes.
