Janet’s Sweet Southern Potato Pie

While I am not a fan of pumpkin pie I adore sweet potato pie and many times it shows up on my Thanksgiving dessert table. F & L has North Carolina Sweet Potatoes for .49 a pound. Use them to make my Sweet Southern Potato Pie.
  • 1 1/2 pounds sweet potatoes cooked and mashed, approximately 2 cups
  • 1/4 cup butter melted
  • 2/3 cups sugar
  • 1/3 cup evaporated milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • pinch of salt
  • 9 inch pie shell
  1. Preheat oven to 350˚F
  2. In a large bowl combine prepared sweet potatoes, melted butter, sugar, evaporated milk, eggs, pumpkin pie spice, vanilla and salt. 
  3. Whisk until smooth (or use an electric mixer if preferred). 
  4. Pour into uncooked 9″ pie crust and bake for 55-60 minutes or until set.
  5. Cool to room temperature before serving. Top with whipped cream.
