  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  2. Mix the graham cracker crumbs together with 1/3 cup white sugar, butter, and 1/8 teaspoon salt in a mixing bowl. Spread evenly over the bottom and sides of a 9 inch pie pan.
  3. Bake the graham cracker crust in preheated oven until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Remove from oven, and cool on a rack.
  4. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  5. To make the sweet potato filling, place the mashed sweet potatoes in a mixing bowl. Whisk in the brown sugar, whipping cream, eggs, vanilla, cinnamon, mace, and salt until smooth and evenly blended. Pour the sweet potato mixture into the baked graham cracker crust.
  6. Bake the pie in preheated oven until the center is set, about 45 minutes. Remove from oven and cool on a rack.
  7. To make the marshmallow meringue, place the marshmallows and milk in a pan; cook over low heat, folding mixture gently until marshmallows are half melted. Remove pan from the heat. Continue folding until marshmallows melt completely, and the mixture becomes smooth and fluffy.
  8. Place the egg whites in a separate mixing bowl, and beat until soft peaks form. Gradually add 1/4 cup white sugar, and continue beating until stiff peaks form. Beat in vanilla and salt. Gently fold the egg whites into the marshmallow mixture, and spread over the top of the pie.
  9. Return the pie to the oven and cook until the meringue is toasted, 5 to 10 minutes.

5 stars for the pie itself if it were made in a regular crust. 1 star for the meringue topping. Sorry. Unless you are going to serve this immediately, the meringue with the marshmallows in it is just too chewy and sticky. Mine split also. Will try the pie on a regular crust with a regular meringue topping to see if I have any better luck.

I tried only the topping, and put it on a different sweet potato pie recipe. It was delicious--very light and fluffy, and toasted to a gorgeous light brown. It was extremely sweet though, so next time I'll cut back the sugar in the filling of the pie. My husband put this on his top 5 best pies list, even though it was the first sweet tato pie I've ever made!

This recipe is fantastic! I usually stick with the highly reviewed recipes to be safe but I went ahead and gave this one a try. I'm glad I did! This is my favorite way to eat sweet potatoes. It's nice and sweet, almost like a sweet potato casserole.

Outstanding. Be careful not to overbeat the meringue!
