Marshmallows browned to perfection in the toaster oven.

I gave those Mason jar rims another try, with success. Next time I’m trying a double crust variety of pie.

1 large or 2 small sweet potatoes, cooked, peeled, and mashed (about 1 cup)
1 egg
1 tablespoon butter, softened
2 tablespoons sugar
1/4 cup evaporated milk (cut this recipe in half)
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
pinch salt
pinch cinnamon
pinch nutmeg
marshmallow for garnish (optional)

Mix all ingredients, except marshmallow, until well combined and almost smooth

1/2 cup AP flour
pinch salt
1/4 teaspoon sugar
3 tablespoons butter, unsalted, cold, cut into small pieces
4 teaspoons water, ice cold

In a food processor combine flour, sugar, and salt
cut in butter
add water

Dump crumbly dough onto a piece of plastic wrap
pulling up the corners, form a mass
wrap tightly and refrigerate for about 30 minutes

Place the lid rims onto a parchment or silicone covered cookie sheet

Preheat oven to 350° F

When the dough has rested
cut into 4 even pieces
push the dough into the forms with your fingers or roll out

Spoon filling into pie shells

Bake for 30 minutes

It's #latke season one and all! Happy #hannukah to you and yours. A #smallbatch of course. #audreycancook #latkelove I bought a fake tree and it's a Coast Redwood. Let the #decorating begin. #christmas in #California #christmastree #decorations #nofilter required when smoke from the #thomasfire envelopes the area. Wonderful canoe ride on #morrobay not Mars. Tx @akayakshack for the rental. Look forward to next time. #audreycancook Finally, only one sleeve to go on this project. I'm grateful that #noroyarn is sturdy, since I've #frogged the body of this sweater twice and the first sleeve three time. Can I say #homestretch now? #knittersofinstagram #knitting #audreycancook Sometimes a #toastedmarshmallow over an open flame is the only thing to satisfy. #audreycancook There are just never enough #teddybears. #knitting #knittersofinstagram #audreycancook
