Please make certain to bake the sweet potatoes not boil them, boiling them will produce a watery pulp that you will need to drain over a strainer to release the water --- you may also cook the sweet potato in the microwave instead of the oven, I sometimes add in about 1/2 cup raisins also --- better make two of these, they will be a hit at your holiday table :)

  1. Set oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Using a fork prick a few holes into the skin of the sweet potato, then wrap in foil.
  3. Place on a small baking sheet and bake until soft and fork tender (about 1 to 1-1/2 hours).
  4. Cool slightly then remove all the pulp and place in a large bowl; cool the pulp to room temperature.
  5. Add in the butter, both sugars, cream, eggs, nutmeg, cinnamon, flour and vanilla; beat on medium speed of an electric mixer until smooth and combined.
  6. Pour the filling onto the pie crust.
  7. Place the pie plate on a baking sheet.
  8. Bake for about 55-60 minutes or until a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean (the pie will come out of the oven puffed up and then sink after it cools slightly).
  9. Serve with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
  10. Cool and top with whipped cream, Cool Whip or ice cream.
