All Southerners love sweet potato pie!

Sweet Potato PieIt is wonderful during the holidays or just anytime you need a great dessert. Sweet Potato Pie is one pie you will make over and over again!

Make this Southern sweet potato pie for family and friends.

1 cup sweet potatoes, mashed (You can use canned or fresh)
1 stick butter or margarine, softened
2 eggs
1/2 cup evaporated milk
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon ginger
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 unbaked 9 inch pie shell
 
Mash sweet potatoes in a large bowl and mix with butter, eggs, sugars, and milk using a mixer.  Add spices, vanilla, flour and continue mixing.  Pour into an unbaked pie shell and bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 50 to 55 minutes until knife inserted into the pie comes out clean.
 
Note:  1 (1lb.) sweet potato equals 1 cup mashed sweet potatoes if you decide to not use canned sweet potatoes.  The above pie was made with boiling a 1 lb. sweet potato for about 40 minutes until cooked.  Then immediately put under cold water to stop the cooking process, peel and mash for pie.
 
You can make your crust or use a bought one.  The one above is bought but I sometimes make the crust.  You can find my recipe for pie crusts here.
 
Your friends and family will love this pie!  Enjoy!
