Delicious Sweet Potato Pie Recipe
Sweet potatoes were another staple I
grew up with. They were fairly inexpensive
and were great baked or put in a pie. Baked
potateos were just eaten with a little butter.
To make a potato pie, you need:
4 large potatoes
2 cups sugar
1 stick butter
1 pinch cinnamon
1 pinch nutmeg
1 store-bought pie crust
or your can just line a pan with vanilla wafers
1/2 cup milk
Boil the potatoes until tender. When you stick a
fork in them it should go in easy but you don't
want them to fall apart.
Let the potatoes cool and then peel them.
Put the potatoes in a large mixing bowl and
mash them thoroughly with a potatoe masher.
Melt the butter and pour it and the other
ingredients in the bowl of potatoes. Stir
until well mixed.
Whether you used a ready made pie crust or
just cookies, pour the potatoes mixture
into the crust.
Put into an oven preheated to 375 degrees.
Cook for about 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick
inserted in the center comes out dry.
I like to eat the pie while still hot. It's
good cold too though.
If you want you can make a meringue topping by
blending confectionary sugar with egg whites.
After the pie is almost done, spread the
meringue thinly across the top. Continue baking
until the meringue turns light brown. If you
use the meiangue, you can add the egg yokes
to the pie if you like. I prefer my pie
without eggs, so I just save the yokes for breakfast
