True Southern comfort food.
  • 2 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • ⅛ tsp. nutmeg
  • 1 scant tsp. vanilla
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 cup sweeten condensed milk – I used one can
  • 1 ½ cup cooked, mashed sweet potatoes
  • 2 T butter
  • Pie crust for a 9” pie
  1. Heat your oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Cook and mash your sweet potatoes. To make the process go quicker I baked my potatoes in the microwave. I simply placed the potatoes in a brown paper bag and cooked them in the microwave for approximately 10 minutes or until they were soft and ready for mashing.
  3. Once the potatoes are mashed add the 2 Tablespoons of butter to the potatoes and mixed well.
  4. In a medium bowl combine the eggs, sugar, salt, spices and milk.
  5. Blend the two mixtures together and mix well.
  6. Place pie crust into a 9” pie pan.
  7. Pour mixture into prepared pie crust.
  8. Bake at 450 degrees for 10 minutes on the middle rack of the oven. Reduce heat to 350 degrees and bake 30 – 40 minutes more or until filling is firm.
