Whipped Sweet Potatoes

Make sweet potatoes even sweeter with a tempting topping of marshmallows, coconut and pecans.


Sweet Potatoes

Coconut Streusel


  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Pierce each potato twice with a fork so excess steam can escape while cooking. Microwave potatoes on HIGH for 5 to 10 minutes or until tender, turning potatoes over halfway through cooking.
  3. Let stand for 5 minutes or until cool enough to handle.
  4. Remove skin from potatoes.
  5. Place potatoes, brown sugar, cream, butter, vanilla and pumpkin pie spice in large bowl. Beat with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth and fluffy.
  6. Spoon mixture into greased 13 x 9-inch or 3-quart baking dish.
  7. Top with marshmallows.
  8. For the Streusel, mix flour, brown sugar and pumpkin pie spice in medium bowl.
  9. Cut in butter with pastry blender or 2 knives until crumbly.
  10. Stir in pecans and coconut. Sprinkle over top.
  11. Bake for 25 minutes or until heated through and topping is golden brown.
