I just got done serving this for Christmas 2008, and everyone loved it. I only made 1/2 of the sweet potato part (I used yams) and made the same amount of the gingersnap mixture (the best part), and put it into a small square baking glass. I substituted margrine for all of the butter, and didn't worry about making the topping crumbly, once I added the cookies and sprinkled it on top it didn't matter. I also substituted 1/4 cup low fat sour cream and a splash of skim milk for the half-and-half. Very rich and tasty! Don't let this winter go by without trying it!

This recipe was the hit of my thanksgiving meal. Many of the kids don't typically like sweet potatoes and loved this casserole. Will definitely keep this recipe as a repeat for my yearly Thanksgiving menu.

I made this for Thanksgiving and my family absolutely LOVED them. I am keeping this recipe for future use. Very easy to make.

Served this as part of our Christmas menu. It was fabulous! The gingersnap streusel is definitely key to the wonderful flavor. We didn't miss the traditional toppings of marshmallows and pecans at all. Liked this much more. To reduce the fat grams I subbed skim milk for the half-and-half, 1/2 c. Eggbeaters for the 2 whole eggs, eliminated the 1/2 c. butter in the first part and subbed light butter for the streusel part. The best sweet potato casserole I've ever had - this recipe will be in my go-to recipe file for Thanksgiving and Christmas menus.

Subbed fat-free milk for half-and-half, otherwise followed directions. Served with Christmas turkey, a big hit.

This was a huge hit! I will definitely make this again. Not too sweet and the gingersnaps added a delicious crunch.
