Recipe Time: Sweet Potato Pie I


I love to cook! You can find my new posts on here titled “Recipe Time.”  I will get my recipes from random places and post them on random days.  I am not going to have a set day to post them because honestly I will forget to do it. You can always come back and look through my blog because I will tag them under recipes.

Over the past week I was given some sweet potatoes from my husband’s grandad.  I let them sit there until my husband bugged me enough to the point I gave in and decided to make him a pie. (I wanted one too I just had to make time.)  I had a recipe before to make a sweet potato pie but with us moving this year I had to look for a new recipe. My favorite place to look is  I love looking there because it is nice to see the reviews of other people and what they suggest you should change.  Sometimes I change things and other times I just leave it as is.

This recipe I found had a ton of reviews. So I decided I would give it a try.

Here is the picture my hubby took with his phone.  We always add cool whip but this was so yummy you don’t need the extra sweetness.

Sweet Potato Pie I

1 (1 pound) sweet potato (which is about 2 cups cooked)
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup milk
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 (9 inch) unbaked pie crust
1.Boil sweet potato whole in skin for 40 to 50 minutes, or until done. Run cold water over the sweet potato, and remove the skin.
2.Break apart sweet potato in a bowl. Add butter, and mix well with mixer. Stir in sugar, milk, eggs, nutmeg, cinnamon and vanilla. Beat on medium speed until mixture is smooth. Pour filling into an unbaked pie crust.
3.Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 55 to 60 minutes, or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Pie will puff up like a souffle, and then will sink down as it cools.
This was the best pie I have made in a long time.  The only thing I changed in this recipe was I did not put in nutmeg.  I do not like the taste of it.  So instead I added a full teaspoon of cinnamon instead of a half teaspoon.
The original recipe can be found here.
