Difficulty: Intermediate

Servings: 8

Prep Time: 20 minutes   Cook Time: about 2 hours  

Ingredients

CRUST
1/2 (14.1-oz.) package refrigerated piecrusts
Parchment paper
1 egg yolk, lightly beaten
1 tablespoon whipping cream


FILLING
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 large eggs
3 cups lightly packed, cooked, mashed sweet potatoes (about 2 1/2 lb. sweet potatoes)
1 cup half-and-half
1 tablespoon lemon zest
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

MARSHMALLOW MERINGUE
3 egg whites
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup sugar
1 (7-oz.) jar marshmallow crème

Directions

Either use your favorite piecrust recipe or use a prepared piecrust: Preheat oven to 425°. Roll piecrust into a 13-inch circle on a lightly floured surface. Fit into a 9-inch pie plate; fold edges under, and crimp. Prick bottom and sides with a fork. Line piecrust with parchment paper; fill with pie weights or dried beans. Bake 9 minutes. Remove weights and parchment paper.


Whisk together egg yolk and cream; brush bottom and sides of crust with yolk mixture. Bake 6 to 8 more minutes or until crust is golden. Transfer to a wire rack, and cool. Reduce oven temperature to 350°.

Prepare filling: Stir together melted butter, 1 cup sugar, salt, and eggs in a large bowl until mixture is well blended. Add sweet potatoes, half-and-half, lemon zest, lemon juice, and nutmeg; stir until mixture is well blended. Pour sweet potato mixture into prepared piecrust. (Pie will be very full.)

Bake at 350° for 50 to 55 minutes or until a knife inserted in center comes out clean, shielding with aluminum foil to prevent excessive browning. Transfer pie to wire rack, and cool completely (about 1 hour).

Prepare meringue: Beat egg whites, vanilla, and salt at high speed with a heavy-duty electric stand mixer until foamy. Gradually add sugar, 1 Tbsp. at a time, beating until stiff peaks form.

Beat one-fourth of marshmallow crème into egg white mixture; repeat 3 times with remaining marshmallow crème, beating until smooth (about 1 minute). Spread over pie.

Bake at 400° for 6 to 7 minutes or until meringue is lightly browned.

Note: Pie can be made up to a day ahead. Prepare recipe as directed through Step 4; cover and chill up to 24 hours. Proceed as directed in Steps 5 through 7.
