Sweet Potato Pie Recipe

(pie while cooling, top will drop down a bit)

Sweet Potato Pie
(organic ingredients) 

Boil 1 lb of sweet potatoes (I use a kitchen scale to weigh the sweet potatoes) for 45-50 minutes or until cooked, then place sweet potatoes into an ice bath (safe bowl to add ice and water) to cool.  Peel and place in a bowl with:

1/2 cup softened butter.  Mix well - hand or electric mixer works well.


2 eggs
1/2 cup evaporated milk*
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated white sugar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/8 tsp. ground cloves
1/8 tsp. ground ginger
1 tsp. vanilla
2 Tbsp. lemon juice 

Mix well, and pour into an unbaked single pie shell.*

Bake at 350°F for 55-60 minutes or until done.
*any milk may work, but I think evaporated works best 
*use your favorite pie crust recipe

That looks delicious, what would you serve it with? I am going to give it a try.

I've made "pumpkin" pie with red kuri squash a lot but never with sweet potatoes. We can't grow sweet potatoes up here (darn!) 'cause our growing season isn't warm enough for them, but I do buy a couple at our co-op for eating as a side dish. Love 'em!

WOW!!! That pie looks so scrumptious, I can almost smell it's wonderful aroma from your picture. LOL
God bless.

That looks great Kristina! It really "rounded" up, I've never seen that before!

Rain, yeah, the pie goes down to a level top after it cools completely.
