Sweet Potato Pie recipe


Ok, so I must give credit where credit is due. Thanks, Aunt Niecy for a fabulous sweet potato pie recipe. The hubby was just saying the other day that he really misses his grandma's sweet potato pie now that she has passed on. So, I was on a mission to find a good recipe that would help to ease the ache a little as well as one that I could pass down to my nieces and nephews and eventually my grandbabies (Lord willing). So here you go, a wonderful pretty darned easy to make sweet potato pie recipe that is fool-proof! Your folks will think that you slaved away in the kitchen all day! LOL!!!


Ingredients


Sweet potatoes (2 medium-sized potatoes per pie)
1/2 cup white granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 stick butter - melted
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp vanilla flavoring
2 large eggs
1/2 cup evaporated milk

*NOTE:  ALWAYS taste test your pie filling BEFORE adding the eggs to see if you would like to add more sugar.  If you want to make 2 pies, then just double the amounts!

1 store-bought pie crust (normally comes with two per package)

Preheat oven to 375o.
Directions
  1. Bake (or boil) potatoes until tender. [I bake my potatoes at 400o for approximately 1 hour.]
  2. When done, let the potatoes cool and peel them.
  3. Place potatoes in a large mixing bowl and roughly mash with a potato masher or fork.
  4. Melt the butter and pour it and remaining ingredients into bowl of potatoes.
  5. Mix on low with mixer until well blended and smooth.
  6. Pour the potato mixture into pie crusts and place into preheated oven.
  7. Bake for 40-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out dry.
  8. (Optional) Sprinkle a couple dashes of paprika for decoration
  9. Enjoy!
