  1. Prepare the sweet potatoes according to the package directions. Chill.
  2. In a medium bowl, beat cream cheese until light and fluffy.
  3. Add 1/3 cup brown sugar, 1/2 tsp cinnamon and half of the mashed sweet potatoes and continue beating until thoroughly combined.
  4. If using whipped cream, beat cream and powdered sugar together until stiff peaks form. Set aside.
  5. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  6. Combine butter, 1/2 brown sugar, 1/4 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp cinnamon in a medium skillet and cook over medium heat for 2 to 3 minutes or until the sugar dissolves and is bubbling.
  7. Add the pecans and stir to coat the pecans. Cook for another 2 to 3 minutes, continuously stirring. Remove from the heat, and spread the pecans out on prepared baking sheet. Let the pecans cool.
  8. Spoon marshmallow creme, mashed sweet potatoes, sweet potato cheesecake, and whipped cream into separate piping bags or large plastic bags with corner cut off.
  9. Place a cookie into the bottom of a small, glass jar or dish. You may need to break the cookie to make it fit.
