Just finished making this, and yeah it's pretty delicious. I didn't use the brown sugar, marshmallow or nutmeg and used yams as opposed to sweet potatoes. Here's what I did:
I finely chopped about 20 dates in the food processor, for sweetness. I added the yams, sprinkling with cinnamon as it pureed, then the butter, pre-melted, a dash of salt and the orange juice. Smoothed into the casserole dish, then prepared my topping.
In a bowl I added approximately 2 tablespoons of melted butter to about 1/2 cup of labne (Middle Eastern yogurt which I use as a substitute for cream cheese, sour cream, and more). Mixed in a splash of vanilla, about 2 teaspoons of sugar, whipped it up by hand, then smoothed over the sweet potatoes.
The finishing touch: A handful of pecans and one date finely chopped together in the food processor, then sprinkled over the casserole. Bake according to directions.
Usually tasting as you go is a good way to avoid anything funky. Trust your gut!
