Marshmallow Topped Sweet Potato Pie with Cinnamon Rol...

A variation on this recipe

"Thankfully this delectable sweet potato pie with a cinnamon roll crust will come to the rescue at your Thanksgiving table. It’s less sweet than pumpkin pie, which is great for its sugary counterparts like marshmallows and cinnamon rolls. But like pumpkin pie, it has that wonderfully smooth texture that balances oh so well with a flaky, tender pie crust. Plus, it’s super easy to make and only requires simple ingredients." — Firebyrd Firebyrd

Very good recipe! It's not too sweet. The only thing that I changed was adding a half of a stick of butter instead of the whole thing. Came out delicious.
