Ingredients

• 2 tbsp. butter, melted

• 1/2 cup + 3 tbsp. light brown sugar, divided

• 2 tbsp. light corn syrup

• 1/2 cup chopped pecans

• 2-1/2 cups biscuit baking mix

• 15 oz. can sweet potatoes, drained & mashed (or 1 cup mashed sweet potatoes)

• 1/2 cup skim milk

• 1 tsp. ground cinnamon

• 1/4 cup dried cranberries

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 400°F.

2. Coat a 9"×9"×2" baking pan or an 8" round cake pan with non-stick baking spray. In bottom of pan, mix together butter, 1/2 cup brown sugar and corn syrup. Spread mixture evenly in pan. Sprinkle with pecans.

3. In a large mixing bowl, beat together baking mix, sweet potatoes and milk until dough forms a ball. Turn dough onto a surface heavily dusted with baking mix and roll or pat into a 12" long rectangle.
