2003-11-24 , ,

We’ve had two people ask for this recipe from Maria’s aunt Shirley. We serve it as dessert but if you have a sweet tooth it makes a nice side dish.

  • 3 to 4 cups mashed cooked sweet potatoes
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs, separated
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 cup flaked coconut
  • 1 cup mini-marshmallows
  • 1 cup crushed pineapple, drained
  • 1/2 stick butter, softened

Combine potatoes, sugar, egg yolks, vanilla, cinnamon and butter. Stir in coconut, marshmallows and pineapple. Beat egg whites until stiff and fold into mixture. Pour into a buttered 2 quart casserole. Make a streusel topping by combining

  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/3 cup butter, softened

and sprinkle it over the mixture. Bake at 325F for 35 minutes.
