Twice-Baked Sweet Potatoes
6 sweet potatoes
½ cup plus 1 tablespoon butter, melted and divided
6 tablespoons apple juice
2 tablespoons brown sugar, packed
½ teaspoon ground ginger
1 cup mini-marshmallows
1/3 cup sweetened flaked coconut
Bake sweet potatoes at 375 degrees for 50 to 60 minutes, until tender. Cool slightly. Partially slice potatoes lengthwise; scoop out centers, leaving 1/8-inch thick shells. Mash potato pulp in a medium bowl. Add ½ cup butter, apple juice, brown sugar and ginger; beat until fluffy. Spoon into shells. Mix together marshmallows, coconut and remaining butter; spoon over potatoes. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes, until heated through.
Yield: Serves 6.
