Sweet Potato Casserole

6 sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into small chunks
1/4 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup chopped nuts
1/2 tsp. allspice

Boil sweet potatoes until tender. Drain and place in a mixing bowl. With a fork mix butter, brown sugar, nuts and allspice until crumbly. Gently toss into potatoes (don't mash potatoes). Pour into a baking dish sprayed with non-stick spray. Top with miniature marshmallows. Bake in a 350 degree oven until hot and marshmallows are slightly browned.

You can change the flavor by changing the spice. Nutmeg is good but ground cloves gives this a really great taste. You can also use cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice.
