If you're looking for the perfect side dish to serve up this holiday season, try making the oat-topped sweet potato crisp recipe from Kraft.

To make this side dish, you will need:

  • 1 pkg. (8 oz.) Philadelphia cream cheese, softened
  • 1 can (40 oz.) sweet potatoes, drained
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar, divided
  • 1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1 Granny Smith apple, chopped
  • 2/3 cup chopped cranberries
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned or quick-cooking oats, uncooked
  • 1/3 cup cold butter or margarine, cut into chunks
  • 1/4 cup chopped Planters pecans

To begin, heat your oven to 350°F.

Beat the cream cheese, potatoes, 1/4 cup sugar and cinnamon with mixer until blended. Spoon into 1-1/2-qt. casserole sprayed with cooking spray; top with fruit.

Mix the flour, oats and remaining sugar in medium bowl; cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in nuts. Sprinkle over fruit.

Bake for 35 to 40 min., or until heated through.
