  • 1

    Preheat oven to 400°F. Roll out pie crust on a lightly floured surface. Brush with butter and sprinkle evenly with cinnamon.

  • 2

    Roll up tightly and slice into 1/2-inch rounds, like miniature cinnamon rolls.

  • 3

    Press miniature cinnamon rolls, flat side down, evenly into the bottom and sides of a 9-inch glass pie plate, making sure there are no spaces between the rolls. Set aside.

  • 4

    In a large bowl, whisk together mashed sweet potato, brown sugar, heavy cream, half and half, eggs, vanilla, cinnamon, cloves and salt. Using a whisk or switching to a hand mixer, whisk ingredients until smooth and thoroughly combined.

  • 5

    Brush pie crust lightly with egg white/water mixture. Then, pour sweet potato mixture carefully on top of pie crust. Bake for about 40 minutes, or until filling has puffed up slightly and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

  • 6

    Remove pie from oven and heat broiler. Top pie with halved marshmallows and place under broiler until marshmallows are a golden brown, about 1 minute. Cool pie on a cooling rack before serving.
