To make 8 servings, you’ll need to combine the mashed, cooked sweet potatoes, Cabot Lowfat Greek Yogurt, Cabot Salted Butter (softened), brown sugar, egg, vanilla extract, ground cinnamon, and ground cloves in a large slow cooker and beat at medium speed with an electric mixer (or hand held immersion blender) until smooth.
Combine the pecans, light brown sugar, all-purpose flour, and melted Cabot Salted Butter in a small bowl and sprinkle over sweet potatoes. Cover and cook on high for 3½ hours. Tilt the lid to let steam escape and keep partially open, cooking for another 30 minutes.
