Sweet Potato Pie

5 12 2011
I was challenged over Thanksgiving to make a Sweet Potato Pie. I had only ever made a pumpkin pie before. I searched around and found this recipe which I doctored up with some more spices and it was delicious. Use your favorite pie crust recipe.

2 9-inch prepared deep dish pie crusts, unbaked

3 eggs, slightly beaten

1 cup sugar

3 cups mashed cooked yams, (I used the red ones with the orange flesh)

2 1/4 cups evaporated milk

1/2 cup butter, melted

1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

3/4 tsp salt

3/4 tsp ground ginger

3/4 tsp mace and/or nutmeg

1/2 tsp cloves

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

In a large mixing bowl, thoroughly beat all ingredients together.

Pour the filling into the prepared pie crusts and place in the oven. Bak 15 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees. Bake until knife inserted in center come out clean. If crust starts to get too dark, cover crust with aluminum foil. Remove from oven and allow to cool to room temperature. Serve with whipped cream.
