Sweet Potato Deluxe Pie


1 (15-oz.) can sweet potatoes (yams), drained
1/2 cup light brown sugar
2 large eggs
1/2 cup evaporated skimmed milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1 1/2 cups mini marshmallows
1/2 cup chopped pecans, toasted
1 (9-inch) pie shell, unbaked


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a mixing bowl, beat sweet potatoes with and electric mixer until smooth. Blend in brown sugar, eggs, milk, vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg until smooth. Sprinkle marshmallows and pecans on the bottom of unbaked pie shell. Pour batter carefully on top. Bake for 45 minutes or until set. To prevent overbrowning of topping and crust, tent foil loosely over pie while baking, being careful not to touch topping. Remove foil, if needed, during last 10 minutes of baking to allow crust and topping to brown. Makes 8 servings.
