Note: This is the best sweet potato pie recipe that I have found. Tastes great!
- 2 cups sweet potatoes, cooked
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup evaporated milk
- 3 eggs
- 2 1⁄2 tablespoons butter
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon nutmeg
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 unbaked pie shells
- Combine all ingredients in mixing bowl; mix well.
- Pour into pie shells.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes.
This pie was excellent! Very simple to make, not too sweet, and not too many spices fighting with each other. The recipe said it would make 2 pies, but I poured most of it into a 9" pie plate, and made one really nice pie. It did however, take one hour to cook, which is what Lennie estimated (when she graciously answered my post in Q & A). For those of you that don't know, which I didn't, a pie such as this one is done when a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Again, this is simplicity at it's best! A real keeper. BTW, my husband requested this, and he's not really a pie person. He said it was "fantastic"! Thanks, Tonkcats!
I agree....this is so YUMMY! I used one large 29 ounce can of sweet potatoes in syrup. If you drain it and mash the sweet potatoes, it equals about 2 cups as the recipe calls for. I cut the sugar down to 3/4 cup to compensate for the sweetness added by the syrup the potatoes were canned in. I also made it into one good 9 inch pie. It baked up beautifully. I baked it on 425 for 20 minutes to brown the crust and then dropped it to 350 for the remainder of the 1 hour baking time. Fantastic and will make it again1
I love bread and pasta and potatoes and cookies and oh please let me have a slice of that sweet potato pie.
