In large saucepan, cover sweet potatoes with water and bring to boil; cook until potatoes are tender, 7 to 9 minutes. Drain and return to pot over medium heat, shaking pan to dry potatoes.

Mash potatoes with 1/3 cup of the butter, cream, salt and pepper. Scrape into 13- x 9-inch (3 L) casserole dish, smoothing top. (Make-ahead: Let cool; cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days.)

In small bowl, rub together remaining butter, flour and sugar; mix in pecans. Sprinkle over potatoes. Bake in 400°F (200°C) oven until golden, 25 to 30 minutes.
