Sweet Potato Casserole

This is always a family favorite for Thanksgiving and Christmas.   One secret tip a wise woman in my life told me is that baking the sweet potatoes helps them retain a better flavor than boiling them.  She was right!  They turned out super good and very flavorful!

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil.  Wash the sweet potatoes, prick them with a fork and place on baking sheet. Bake potatoes for 75 – 90 minutes or until they are cooked through.  Once they are comfortable to touch, peel the outer skin and cut the potatoes into pieces and place in a greased 9X9 inch casserole dish.20131119-121310.jpg

In a small sauce pan, add sugars, corn starch, orange juice, and butter together and simmer on the stove.  Pour the sauce over the sweet potatoes and top with marshmallows.  Bake on 350 degrees. for 30-40 minutes. Bake on 350 degrees. for 30-40 minutes.
