Sweet potatoes were a staple that many of us grew up with. They were fairly inexpensive and were great baked or made into a Sweet Potato Pie.

Baked potatoes were just eaten with a little butter.

 To make a sweet potato pie, you need:

4 large sweet potatoes

2 cups sugar

1 stick butter

1 pinch cinnamon

1 pinch nutmeg

1 store-bought pie crust

1/2 cup milk

Boil the potatoes until tender. When you stick a fork in them it should go in easy but you don’t want them to fall apart. 

Let the potatoes cool and then peel them.

 Put the potatoes in a large mixing bowl and mash them thoroughly with a potatoe masher. Melt the butter and pour it and the other ingredients in the bowl of potatoes. Stir until well mixed.

 Whether you used a ready made pie crust or just cookies, pour the potatoes mixture into the crust.

 Put into an oven preheated to 375 degrees. Cook for about 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out dry.

This recipe is not in the Pie Book..however, it is a variation of many sweet potato pie recipes that are available.
