Cherry Sweet Potato Casserole

100% would make this recipe again!
Recipe Description
This recipe has been a long time secret indulgence, as I don't just make it for Thanksgiving.  I've somehow come to think of this casserole as the sweet stepchild of Thanksgivings past.

Serves Tool

Serves To:USMetric
1/3 Cup(c)  dark brown sugar, packed
1/2 Cup(c)  unsalted butter
1/4 Cup(c)  honey
87 Ounce(oz)  sweet potatoes
1 Cup(c)  maraschino cherries (optional)
3 Cup(c)  mini marshmallows
4 Teaspoon(t)  kosher salt, or to taste
1 Teaspoon(t)  pure vanilla extract


Preheat the oven to 375°F.  Grease two 9 or 10 inch pie plates, or one 13 by 9 inch nonreactive baking pan.  Drain the sweet potatoes, reserving 1/2 cup of the syrup.  Using a potato masher or a fork, mash the potatoes in a large bowl.  Combine the reserved liquid with the brown sugar and butter in a small saucepan over medium heat.  Heat, stirring often, until the butter has melted and the brown sugar has dissolved.  Remove the pan from the heat and add the honey, vanilla and 2 teaspoons of the salt.  Stir well.  Add this mixture to the mashed sweet potatoes, and combine thoroughly.  Taste, and add salt if needed.  Divide the mixture between the prepared pie plates, or place it all in the prepared baking pan, and bake for 20 minutes.  Sprinkle the mini marshmallows, and the cherries if using, over the mixture and press them into the surface.  Continue baking until the marshmallows turn golden brown, about 10 minutes.  Serve immediately.
