  • 9 inch unbaked deep-dish pie crust
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes about 1.5 pounds
  • 6 tbsp unsalted butter softened
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar packed
  • 3 tbsp molasses
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 tsp ground allspice
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg or freshly grated
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 large eggs room temperature
  • 1 to 2 cups miniature marshmallows


  • Preheat the oven to 425F.
  • Transfer the pie crust to your pie plate and crimp the edges. Line the crust with parchment paper and top with pie weights (or beans, rice or coffee beans...)
  • Bake for 10 minutes. Remove weights and parchment paper and reduce oven temperature to 375F. Return to the oven and bake an additional 7 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.
  • Reduce oven temperature to 350F.
  • While the crust is baking, fill a medium pot with water and generously salt.
  • Peel the sweet potatoes and cute into 1 - 2 inch chunks.
  • Place the sweet potatoes in the pot and bring the water to a boil. Cook at a low boil until the potatoes are tender, about 15 minutes. Drain well.
  • In a large mixing bowl, beat together sweet potatoes, butter, brown sugar, molasses, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, vanilla extract, and salt. Beat until nice and smooth.
  • Beat eggs in one at a time.
  • Transfer filling to the pie crust and smooth the top. Bake 45 minutes or until the center of the pie has set up.
  • If refrigerating: Cool pie, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to 3 days. When ready to serve, remove from refrigerator, let warm on counter top for 30 minutes before topping with marshmallows and broiling for 1 to 2 minutes or until marshmallows are golden brown.
  • If serving: Cool pie slightly, top with marshmallows and broil for 1 to 2 minutes or until marshmallows are golden brown.
