 Orange sweet potatoes with oatmeal topping
 adapted from november 1994 gourmet magazine (and yes, I did make it ff!)
 5 lbs of sweet potatoes (about 7 large)
 1/4 cup brown sugar
 1/4 cup of oj
 1/4 cup of sweet orange marmalade
 1 T. grated peeled ginger
 1/4 c prepared butter buds (optional -- I just used water because some
 people in philly fatfree are vegan; 1/4 C is half a packet.)
 1 box Obies oatmeal cookie mix
 Bake the sweet potatoes until very soft. Allow to cool. 
 In a bowl, mash together the first 6 ingredients (peel the potatoes first!).
 Pour into a 13x9x2 pan (I used an extra large pie pan). 
 In a separate bowl, mix up the obies mix, so that it is not overly wet (the
 directions say to add 1/4 cup of water, and then add water by the
 tablespoon. I think I probably added 2 or 3 tablespoons.) Cover and chill
 for 2 hours.
 Crumble oatmeal topping over potato mixture, until it's evenly distributed.
 Bake at 350F until golden brown, about 10-15 minutes. (Make sure the oatmeal
 has cooked through!) If the oatmeal starts to turn white, take it out --
 it's drying out.
 Good alternative to marshmallow topped sweet potatoes. Has the Jackie Manni
 seal of approval. =-)
 P.S. for people who haven't been exposed to Obie's, it's a cookie mix with
 dried fruit purees instead of oils. If you have a favorite ff oatmeal cookie
 recipe, use that in lieu of obies.
