This recipe is my all-time favorite for sweet potato pie. Of course I have a major sweet tooth so I always modify my recipes, and this was no exception. I used one large yam and one large sweet potato for the filling, and added some cinnamon, allspice, a teeny bit more orange rind, and about a tablespoon of brown sugar. I then topped it with a layer of sugar-coated pecans and a layer of mini marshmallows in the last fifteen minutes of baking. The pecans melted a bit to make a wonderful caramelized glaze while the marshmallows browned lightly and looked beautiful. It was a sensation! People still bring it up to this day, and I've been asked to make it every Thanksgiving from now on.
