I always have lots of leftover sweet potatoes, but when I make this, they're gone faster than you can say "Thanksgiving!" Any ice cream flavor will do, though vanilla bean seems to be an ideal companion. —Joyce Welling, Swanton, Ohio

Ingredients

  • 4 cups mashed sweet potatoes
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 3 large eggs, separated
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 cup sweetened shredded coconut, divided
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup slivered almonds
  • Vanilla ice cream, optional

Directions

In a large bowl, beat the potatoes, cream, egg yolks, lemon juice, lemon peel and spices until smooth. Fold in 2/3 cup coconut.
In a large bowl with clean beaters, beat egg whites on medium speed until soft peaks form. Gradually beat in brown sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, on high until stiff glossy peaks form and sugar is dissolved.
With a spatula, stir a fourth of the egg whites into sweet potato mixture until no white streaks remain. Fold in remaining egg whites until combined.
Transfer to a greased 11x7-in. baking dish. Sprinkle with almonds and remaining coconut. Bake at 325° for 50-55 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Serve warm with ice cream if desired. Yield: 8 servings.

"I made a smaller recipe by halving everything and using 2 eggs. We still had leftovers with the 4 of us. I left out the lemon peel and the extra coconut on top. I used fat free half and half in place of the cream and pecans on top rather than almonds. It was a nice change of pace and probably a little lighter than my normal ways of fixing baked sweet potatoes."
