DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 400.
  • Pierce sweet potatoes with a fork and microwave on high until tender, about 6 minutes on each side. Cut open; cool completely.
  • Scrape potato flesh into bowl; mash until smooth.
  • Measure out enough potato puree to equal 1 cup, discard the rest.
  • Cream together sweet potatoes, butter, buttermilk, eggs and sugar. Add spices and baking soda and blend well.
  • Pour half into each crust and bake on 400 for about 45 minutes or until set in center.
  • (Adding a dollop of whipped cream to the top of each piece while it is still warm is a very special treat!).
