Sweet Potato Casserole

Every time I get sweet potatoes to home I usually bake them in oven just like Baked potato. This time I wanted to experiment new with these and ended up making casserole. Perfect dinner Idea
3-4 large sweet potatoes
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 teaspoon salt 
1/4 cup brown sugar or Less If u like less sweet
1/2 cup whole almonds
1.Start with a pot of cold water and add the sweet potatoes or you can pressure cook for 15-20 mins under high pressure, cook until they are very soft
2.While the sweet potatoes are cooking, prepare the topping by putting a half-cup of almonds and brown sugar into a small food processor and process it till it forms a coarse meal. You don't want it to be completely ground up.
3.When the sweet potatoes are finished cooking,really tender when pierced with a fork ,allow them to cool down, peel and place in a bowl.
4.Use a whisk until you have mashed the sweet potatoes to your desired consistency and add the heavy cream, salt and the freshly ground black pepper. Mix until it's fully incorporated.
5.Layer the sweet potato mixture into the 9"*9" baking dish.
6.Sprinkle the almond mixture over the top. Arrange in an even layer and move it around with your hand if necessary.
Bake sweet potato casserole in a 350-degree oven for about 25 minutes and serve!!!
