      In a medium saucepan, cook raw sweet potatoes or yams in enough boiling salted water to cover for 20 to 25 minutes or until tender. Drain. Cool slightly and peel. Mash cooked or canned sweet potatoes (you should have 1-1/2 cups.) Set aside.
    2. 2
      Preheat oven to 375F degrees.
    3. 3
      In a large mixing bowl, combine mashed sweet potatoes, brown sugar, molasses, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and salt. Add eggs and milk; mix well.
    4. 4
      Pour sweet potato mixture into unbaked pie shell. Cover edge of pie with foil. Bake in 375F degree oven for 20 minutes. Remove the foil. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes more or until a knife, inserted halfway between the center and edge, comes out clean.

      Creamy texture and unique flavor. However, I think the molasses is a bit too strong here (and I like molasses). I used 2 large eggs instead of 3 eggs, and evaporated milk instead of regular milk.

      This is a great recipe Bayhill. I used the pie filling for 12 tarts. They were wonderful. The sweet potato filling was incredible, rich, creamy, thick, smooth, spicy, dark and deep. I really loved the addition of the dark molasses. It really adds to the depth and flavor of this pie. We really enjoy sweet potato pie and will make your tasty treat again. I garnished the tarts with a sprinkle of powdered sugar and a dollop of whipped cream. It was ambrosia, pure ambrosia. Thank you so much for sharing

      This pie comes out good each time I make it. I started using the molasses when I was shopping at a whole food supermaket in my area. They gave us a sample of it and I fell in love with it. It taste better than the original sweet potato pie I use to make. The only thing I have changed in this recipe is that I use 2 eggs instead of 3.
