Spray a 3 quart (13 x 9-in) baking dish with cooking spray. Add sweet potatoes and pecans to dish. Combine brown sugar and corn starch in a small saucepan. Gradually add orange juice, whisking to blend. Cook over high heat, stirring constantly, until mixture boils. Reduce heat and simmer 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat, add butter and vanilla.
