DIRECTIONS

  • Pop the sweet taters in the microwave until they are soft inside and easily pierced with a knife.
  • Put them aside and allow them to cool.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Put the eggs in a large bowl and beat them lightly.
  • Add the Eagle Brand, the butter, the vanilla, and the salt.
  • Combine well.
  • By this time the potatoes should be cool enough to touch. The peel should easily come off the potatoes. (I have found this easier that peeling, cubing, and boiling.).
  • Add the potatoes to the Eagle Brand liquids.
  • Mash well until everything is well mixed and smooth.
  • Pour into the 2 deep dish pie crusts.
  • Bake 55 minutes or until a knife inserted into the middle comes up clean.
  • Serve with whipped cream if desired.
  • Enjoy, Enjoy, Enjoy!
