1. Heat oven to 350°. Butter a 1 1/2-quart baking dish. Cook the sweet potatoes on high in the microwave for 15 minutes. Remove from skins and mash. In a small bowl mix sugar, vanilla, eggs, butter, and cinnamon. Add the sugar mixture to the potatoes. Mix well, and transfer to a prepared baking dish.
2. In a mixing bowl, combine the brown sugar, flour, pecans, salt, and melted butter. Mix well and sprinkle on the potatoes. Drizzle the remaining melted butter over the topping. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes. Do not let your teenage son start picking at this before dinner or you won't have any topping left!
