Ingredients

  • 4 medium sweet potatoes (about 10 ounces each)
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

When cool enough to handle, cut each potato lengthwise in half. Scoop out pulp, leaving 1/4-in.-thick shells. Place potato shells in a 15x10x1-in. baking pan.
In a large bowl, mash pulp with butter, brown sugar, salt and pepper; stir in cranberry sauce. Fold in turkey, marshmallows and pecans; spoon into shells. Sprinkle with coconut. Bake 8-10 minutes or until heated through. Yield: 8 servings.
