How to Make a Sweet Potato Pie
Sweet Potato Pie
Tools Needed: Pot to boil potatoes, Large Mixing Bowl, Large Spoon for Stirring, Measuring Cup (dry ingredients), Measuring Spoons and Glass Measuring Cup (liquids)
Ingredients Needed: 2 large sweet potatoes (yams); 1 cup milk, 1 cup sugar, 3 eggs, 1 stick of margarine, 1/8 tsp of flour, a pinch of baking powder, 1/4 tsp vanilla flavor, 1/4 tsp of nutmeg, 1/8 tsp cinnamon
First, wash and peel sweet potatos. Cook in pot of boiling water until done enough to mash up. Drain water and put potatoes in large mixing boll,
Mash potatoes until relatively smooth (some very small lumps may be present)
Add butter and mix well into sweet potatoes
Add milk to mixture and stir until mixed well
Add eggs and stir well
Add sugar and flour and stir until mixture thickens. You should still be able to pour mixture
Now add the vanilla flavoring and stir, add nutmeg and cinnamon to taste. (I like more Nutmeg than Cinnamon).
Filling is now ready to be poured into pie crust.
I use a frozen ready made Pie Crust for this desert. I use the regular crust as a preference. If you like a lot of crust with your pies you should use the deep dish pie crust. Bake the pie crust for about 5 minutes prior to putting in the filling.
Pour filling into pre-heated pie crust and bake for 1 hour at 400F.
I first made this dessert as a child. I am now 50yrs old and my mother is now 90 years old. She got the recipe from her mother when she was a teenager.
