Ingredients

Graham Cracker Crust:

Sweet Potato Filling:

  • 2 medium cooked sweet potatoes mashed (about 2 cups)
  • ½ cup unsalted Minerva Dairy butter softened
  • ½ cup whole milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup granulated white sugar
  • ½ cup light brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

Marshmallow Crème Meringue:

  • 3 egg whites room temperature
  • ¼ teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup white granulated sugar
  • 1 7 ounce jar marshmallow crème

Instructions

For the crust:

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  • In a medium bowl, combine crushed cookies and graham crackers. Add butter and mix to combine. Crumbs should form a ball when squeezed in the palm of your hand. If not, add additional melted butter one tablespoon at a time until you reach desired consistency.
  • Press crumbs into the bottom and up the sides of one 9-inch fluted tart pan or six 4.75-inch mini fluted tart pans. Bake for 15 minutes or until crust is set. Remove crust from the oven and allow to cool.

For the sweet potato filling:

  • Combine mashed sweet potatoes and butter in a large mixing bowl. Mix at medium speed until blended.
  • Pour in the milk.
  • Add the eggs, one at a time.
  • Add the nutmeg, cinnamon, vanilla, sugars, flour, and lemon juice.
  • Pour mixture into the cooled crust. Bake at 325 degrees for 45 minutes to one hour until the center is set and no longer wobbly.

For the marshmallow meringue:

  • While tart is baking, beat the egg whites, cream of tartar, salt and sugar at medium high speed using an electric mixer. Beat until soft peaks form.
  • Gradually add the marshmallow crème. Continue to beat until stiff peaks form.
  • Spread or pipe meringue over the tart, making sure to seal edges. Bake at 325 degrees for 15 minutes until the meringue is golden.
