Sweet Potato Pie

Sweet Potato Pie

Place the whole sweet potatoes in a pot, cover with cold water, bring to a simmer, and cook until the potatoes are done all the way through. You can poke them with a fork or knife every now and then to check if they’re ready.

Let the potatoes cool slightly and while they’re still warm you can easily remove the skin. Add the butter, egg, sugar, nutmeg, cinnamon, and salt to the potatoes and blend together with a mixer until smooth. At this point you can give it a taste to see if you need a little extra sugar or maybe a dash more cinnamon.

Fill the pie shell and bake. Now this is where my memory of the recipe gets a little fuzzy, so I called my dad. He said to bake it at 325 degrees F for 20 minutes and then 375 degrees F until done, but he wasn’t 100 percent sure. So of course I couldn’t do exactly what my father said and I decided to tweak the time and temperatures a bit. I baked the pie for 45 minutes at 350 degrees F degrees and then another 30 minutes at 375 degrees F.
