Ingredients:  
4 medium sweet potatoes
1/4 teaspoon salt
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1/3 cup buttermilk
1/3 cup milk
4 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup miniature marshmallows

Directions:
Directions:
Adjust oven rack to low position and heat oven to 400. Place scrubbed potatoes on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or foil. Bake until fork tender, about 45 to 60 minutes. Let cool slightly.

Handling the potatoes with a potholder, slice each in half lengthwise and scoop out potato flesh into a blender or food processor, leaving a 1/4-inch border of flesh to support the potato skin. Puree scooped-out flesh, along with salt and pepper, until smooth. With machine motor running, gradually add both milks through feeder tube. Stop machine, add butter, then process until potatoes are silky smooth. [Note: Puree and potato shells can be cooled, then refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 2 days.]

Return to room temperature before proceeding. Spoon puree back into each shell. Just before baking, press marshmallows into potatoes.

Bake at 400 until potatoes are hot and marshmallows are golden brown, 10 - 12 minutes.

Personal Notes:
This is one dish that Ashley always requests for any holiday meal. Sometimes "older palates" request that theirs not have marshmallows. Ashley is happy to eat their portion of the marshmallows raw, right out of the package.
