The first two times I made the pie I baked a sweet potato and made it from that. This time I used a quart jar of sweet potatoes that I had canned in the fall. It still tasted the same as baking a fresh potato.
Now prepare your filling. Here is the link for Paula Dean's Old Fashioned Sweet Potato Pie
Mix together 2 cups sweet potatoes, 1 cup sugar, 1/4 cup butter melted, 2 eggs, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger. Mix until smooth then add 1 cup milk. Mix together and pour into your prepared pie crust.
Now bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 35-45 minutes or until a knife inserted in center comes out clean. When you put the pie in the oven start preparing the marshmallow meringue. In a small sauce pan stir together 1/2 cup water, 2 Tablespoons sugar, and 1 Tablespoons of cornstarch. Bring to a boil over medium heat and cook and stir until thick and the mixture becomes clear. Pull off heat and let sit to cool for about 15 minutes. In a large bowl mix 3 egg whites with 1/4 teaspoon of cream of tartar. Mix until foamy. Add cornstarch mixture and mix until blended. Add a 7 oz jar of marshmallow creme and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract. Continue beating until soft peaks form. When pie is baked remove from the oven and top the hot pie with the marshmallow meringue.
Return the pie to the oven and bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until meringue is lightly browned. Let stand at least 30 minutes before serving. Tastes great either warm or cold!!
