Raspberry-Mallow Sweet Potatoes

My idea of fun is taking old, reliable recipes and creating new taste twists from them. This is one such success story. A classic holiday vegetable gets a delightful pick-me-up from raspberry preserves and marshmallow creme.—Darlene Godschalx, Prescott, Arizona

    I had a hard time spreading the mallow and then adding the raspberry mixture. It still tasted okay, but not with the pretty ribbon image.
