My daddy was off work for back surgery a few years ago and went on a quest to bake the perfect biscuit. Once he mastered that, he moved on to pies. This is his "famous" sweet potato pie that his family, friends and co-workers all demand he make for them.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 cups mashed sweet potatoes (you can use fresh ones that have been baked and scooped out of their skin or you can use canned ones)
  • 13 cup butter
  • 14 teaspoon salt
  • 12 cup orange juice (not concentrated)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 4 eggs, beaten well
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2 unbaked 9-inch pie shells


  1. Combine potatoes, butter, salt, orange juice, sugar, eggs, milk, cinnamon and nutmet and mix well.
  2. Pour 1/2 of this mixture into each unbaked pie shell.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees until the pie is firm in the middle (this depends on your oven because mine and daddy's have a huge time difference in the cooking time---mine takes about 45 minutes).
