    Tish's Note:

    Found this recipe in a book from 1952. Looks really good and a cute idea for presentation. Guessing on times. Please update me if you make it! I added the cooking time of the potatoes to the recipe via microwave oven

      The flavor of the sweet potatoes was delicious. A little time consuming with the orange rinds and couldn't quite get what to do with the marshmallows, I think next time I'll sprinkle with brown sugar. Were a bit hit!

      We love these! I make them a bit differently, though. I add condensed milk, vanilla, ginger, nutmeg, & cinnamon to the potatoes. After filling, I sprinkle the tops with chopped pecans, and bake for 20 minutes. Then I top with mini marshmallows & bake another 20 minutes. A little water in the bottom of the dish keeps them from drying out too much. Thanks!
