Mom's sweet potato pies are a vital part of my family's Thanksgiving. This is a recipe she inherited from her mother. The blender incorporates ingredients so well that this makes a creamy pie beyond belief. Mom prefers her sweet potato pie without any spices at all, but I usually add pinch or two of the spices listed below. Also, in lieu of the glaze, we opt for a creamy refrigerated whipped topping, but I've included glaze directions as an option.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Place pie shells in 350°F oven for about 5 minutes, or till just barely brown; set aside.
  2. Place remaining pie ingredients in blender container and whirl till well-blended.
  3. Pour equally into the 2 pie shells.
  4. Place in 350°F oven; bake for 30 to 40 minutes, or till filling is set.
  5. (Note: if crust begins to get too brown during cooking, use strips of aluminum foil along the crust ridges to keep from over-browning) While pie is cooking, glaze may be prepared: Place ingredients for glaze into mixing bowl and blend with electric mixer until smooth.
  6. Drizzle glaze over pies while they are still warm.
