The sweet potatoes were on sale so I got two…
This pie has been around for many years in some families around me and I finally got a recipe to go with it. What a great surprise this little thing gave me. Sweet potatoes pie tastes like a pumpkin pie but better because it is less sweet and smoother than the pumpkin one.
A very good pie!
2 cups of mashed sweet potatoes cooked
1 cup of dark brown sugar
1/2 cup of butter
2 eggs, separated
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup of cream or evaporated milk
1/2 teaspoon of each ginger, nutmeg and cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 unbaked 10” pastry shell
Mix potatoes, brown sugar, butter, egg yolks, salt and spices in a bowl. Add milk. Beat egg white in a separate bowl and add the white sugar. Fold the potato mix into the egg white gently.
Pour it all into the unbaked pastry shell. Bake at 400F for 10 minutes. Bake an additional 45 minutes at 350F. Cool and served. Amazing pie!
