Serves: Makes 10 (3/4-cup) servings.

  • 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar, divided
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • 2 teaspoons Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Pumpkin Pie Spice, divided
  • 3 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces

  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 2 cups miniature marshmallows


15-Min Prep – 55-Minute cook time. 

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Mix 1/4 cup of the brown sugar, orange juice, vanilla and 1 teaspoon of the pumpkin pie spice in large bowl. Add sweet potatoes; toss to coat. Spoon into 13×9-inch baking dish. Dot with 2 tablespoons of the butter. Cover.
  2. Bake 45 minutes or until potatoes are slightly tender.
  3. Meanwhile, mix flour, remaining 1/4 cup brown sugar and remaining 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice in medium bowl. Cut in remaining 2 tablespoons butter with fork until crumbly. Stir in pecans and marshmallows.
  4. Remove casserole from oven and stir gently to coat potatoes in syrup. Sprinkle evenly with marshmallow-crumb topping. Bake, uncovered, 7 to 10 minutes longer or until potatoes are tender and topping is golden brown.


  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.
  • For an added treat, stir 1/2 cup raisins into topping.
