In a large bowl combine all the filling ingredients. Transfer to a buttered 1 1/2 quart casserole dish.
In a medium bowl combine the brown sugar, flour, and butter until moist and the mixture clumps together. Stir in the pecans and spread over the top of the sweet potatoes in an even layer. Bake until the top is golden, about 25 to 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and serve hot.
