I'm glad to have found this recipe just in time for Thanksgiving. I would challenge any other Sweet Potatoes with Marshmallows against this one. I used about 3 lbs because it was the weight of 3 sweet potatoes I bought. For the spoon measurements, I didn't go with a heaping but just a flat spoonful for the ingredients. Other than that I followed the recipe exactly and it came out GREAT! I was happy to cook this dish for Thanksgiving memories.

Too much cinnamon! It ruined the dish! It should be a teaspoon not a tablespoon! I learned the hard way.
