      by: Marc Haynes

      3 large sweet potatoes (2 to 2-1/2 pounds), peeled and cubed
      1/4 cup packed brown sugar
      1/4 cup half-and-half cream
      2 tablespoons butter
      3/4 cup miniature marshmallows
      1/4 cup Chopped Pecans
      4 large oranges, halved
      32 additional miniature marshmallows

      1. Remove pulp from oranges, leaving a shell. (Save for mixture.)
      2. Place sweet potatoes in a large saucepan or Dutch oven; cover with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and cook for 25-30 minutes or just until tender. Drain.
      3. In a large bowl, beat the sweet potatoes, orange pulp, sugar, cream and butter on low speed until smooth. Stir in 3/4 cup marshmallows and pecans; set aside.
      Spoon sweet potato mixture into shells. Place four marshmallows on top of each.
      4. Place in a greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan. Bake, uncovered, at 350 for 20 minutes or until heated through.
