by Jill Simonds


  • 1 lb. sweet potatoes, boiled, peeled and mashed
  • 1/2 c. butter, softened
  • 1 c. granulated sugar
  • 1/2 c. milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 9- inch unbaked pie crust


  • Boil sweet potatoes whole in skin for 40-50 minutes, or until done. Run cold water over sweet potatoes and remove skin. Break apart sweet potatoes in large bowl. Add butter and mix well with mixer.
  • Stir in sugar, milk, eggs, nutmeg, cinnamon and vanilla. Beat on medium speed until mixture is smooth.
  • Pour filling into an unbaked pie crust and bake at 350 degrees for 55-60 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Pie will puff up like a soufflé and then sink as it cools.
