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.
