  • 3 medium Sweet Potatoes peeled and cut into 1” squares
  • 1 Stick butter salted
  • 14 marshmallows
  • ¾ Cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1 Teaspoon Nutmeg
  • 3 Large Eggs
  • 1 Refrigerated Pie Crust

Optional Topping:

  • 1 cup Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 3 Tablespoons Powdered Sugar
  • ¼ Teaspoon Vanilla


  • Boil sweet potatoes until tender (about 20 minutes)
  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Add butter and marshmallows to sweet potatoes and beat until melted and well combined.
  • Add sugar, nutmeg, and salt, mix well.
  • Add the eggs and beat until well mixed and creamy.
  • Line a 9” pie dish with the refrigerated pie crust then take the sweet potato mixture and fill the pie crust.
  • Bake until the pie rises, browns, and firms up. This is usually about 35-40 minutes.  If needed, use a pie crust shield if it looks like the crust is browning too fast.
  • Allow the pie to cool completely. Beat the heavy cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla until stiff peaks are formed.  Use this as a topping for your sweet potato pie (if desired)
