    Directions
    1. 
    In 4-quart saucepan or Dutch oven, place potatoes; add enough water just to cover potatoes. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 20 to 25 minutes or just until potatoes are tender. Drain; rinse with cold water to cool slightly.
    2. 
    Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray 2- to 2-1/2-quart shallow casserole with cooking spray. Remove skins from sweet potatoes. Cut into 1/2-inch slices; place in casserole.
    3. 
    In 1-quart saucepan, heat brown sugar, cornstarch, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, apple juice and 2 tablespoons butter to boiling over medium-high heat, stirring constantly. Boil and stir 1 minute. Pour mixture over potatoes. In small bowl, mix topping ingredients until crumbly. Sprinkle evenly over sweet potatoes.
    4. 
    Bake uncovered 15 to 20 minutes or until bubbly.
