Preheat oven to 400°F. Mix 1/4 cup of the brown sugar, orange juice, vanilla, 1/2 teaspoon each of the cinnamon and ginger, and salt in large bowl. Add sweet potatoes; toss to coat well. Spoon into 13x9-inch baking dish. Sprinkle evenly with cranberries. Dot with 2 tablespoons of the butter. Cover with foil. Bake 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, mix flour, remaining 1/2 cup brown sugar and remaining 1 teaspoon each cinnamon and ginger in medium bowl. Cut in remaining 4 tablespoons butter with a fork until coarse crumbs form. Stir in pecans. Remove sweet potatoes from oven and stir gently. Sprinkle evenly with pecan topping.
Bake, uncovered, 25 to 30 minutes longer or until sweet potatoes are tender and topping is lightly browned.
I needed a recipe for sweet potatoes since there is finally another person in the family that likes them - but my normal steamed with butter seemed a little boring to him. Thank you for the alternative to marshmallow topped gunk I lived through as a child.

I must say - this was a perfect recipe for sweet potatoes! Everyone loved it for Thanksgiving! I used almond flour instead to make it gluten free since some in my family get really sick with wheat. I also used less ginger - thought it might be overpowering.

Easy to make, and great taste. Even my mother-in-law, liked it. And she never has anything nice to say. ;)

Do the sweet potatoes need to be pre-cooked (boiled or roasted) and peeled before mixing w/ other ingredients?

A bit on the sweet side but an easy fix and a hit with everyone. Definitely will make it again and not just for holidays.

Can this be cooked in a crock pot?

I would have made this with yams. I made this for Easter and was terrible... waaay too sweet. 1/2 the amount of sugar could have been used in this recipe. I had to keep adding orange juice to it as it started to burn.. I finally added some fresh tangerines to improve the flavor.. Very mushy and I won't be making it again...
