Recipe Tips


Heat oven to 350°F. 


Add potato slices to saucepan of boiling water; cook 8 to 10 min. or just until potatoes are tender. 


Use slotted spoon to transfer potatoes to bowl of ice water; let stand until potatoes are completely cooled.  Drain on paper towels. 


Place crackers in single layer on baking sheet; top with sweet potatoes.  Add 1 pecan piece to each topped cracker to resemble a stem on a pumpkin, gently pressing pecan into potato to secure.  


Top with marshmallows, cut sides down; sprinkle with pumpkin pie spice.


Bake 5 min. or until potatoes are heated through and marshmallows start to puff.
