About 1/3 cup orange juice
Scant 1/4 cup light brown sugar
1 teaspoon finely grated orange (or lemon) rind
1 beaten egg
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg (or 1/16 teaspoon allspice, mace or ginger)
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup chopped pecans
Cook peeled sweet potatoes, cut in quarters in boiling salted water (or heated canned sweet potatoes in their juice). Drain, mash until light and fluffy.

Put marshmallows on top; return dish to oven until marshmallows are golden brown. Serves 6-8.
Anne's Thoughts: For holiday touches, prepare basic recipe. Cut 3 navel oranges in half; remove pulp and white membrane. Fill each cup with seasoned mixture. Top each cup with one marshmallow. Bake about 20 minutes in 350 degree oven.
