Sweet potato and apple casserole

In case you went away from yesterday's post thinking I'm a food snob, here's my favorite recipe for sweet potatoes using those horrible mini-marshmallows.

It's delicious.

3 medium sweet potatoes, sliced
2 large apples, sliced
2 cups mini-marshmallows
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
2 tbsp cornstarch
1/2 cup water
4 tbsp butter

Spread half the potatoes in a 3-quart casserole. Add apples and marshmallows. Repeat layers. Mix sugar, salt, and cinnamon. Sprinkle over mixture. Dissolve cornstarch in water. Pour over mixture. Dot with butter. Cover and bake at 350 deg F for one hour.

Not a fan of the sweet sweet potato dishes here. :-) But thanks for the recipe anyway.
