Sweet Potato Pie

My sister, Heather, has many fond memories of Sweet Potato Pie from our childhood but it has to be juuuuuuust right.

We have had this pie at Thanksgiving year after year.

It’s one of our favorites.

We never have pumpkin pie, but we have sweet potato pie every single year.

This recipe is the right one so I’m posting this recipe for Heather!

The star of this Sweet Potato Pie recipe is a large sweet potato that has been peeled and boiled until soft.

Use a vegetable peeler to remove the skin the cut the sweet potatoes into about 1-inch cubes.

Place the sweet potatoes into a large pot and cover with water.

Bring the water the a boil then allow to simmer for up to an hour until the sweet potatoes are soft.

You will know that the sweet potatoes are done if you can poke one with a fork and it breaks apart.

You’ll want about a cup of mashed sweet potato so you can use one large sweet potato or a couple smaller sweet potatoes.

If your sweet potatoes make a little more than a cup of mashed sweet potato, it’s okay to go ahead and put it in.

A little extra sweet potato never hurt anybody.

We’ll go light on the spices in this pie so that the sweet potato can really shine.

We want the spices to complement the sweet potato and not overpower it so we’ll go with a 1/2 teaspoon of ground nutmeg and 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon.

And don’t skip the vanilla.

Vanilla adds a wonderful flavor and richness to this Sweet Potato Pie.

Mix the spices in with the sugar and butter to create a delicious pie.

Check the recipe for how to make with reduced sugar and butter.

Some sweet potatoes are sweeter than others so you may need to adjust the sugar a bit.

This recipe is exactly how we make it and it does not disappoint.

We usually don’t top our Sweet Potato Pie with anything but you can definitely top it with some sweetened whipped cream if you’d like.

Cinnamon whipped cream would also be excellent on this pie.

Or even ice cream would be a delicious choice.

Whatever you top it with, this Sweet Potato Pie will be a great addition to your holiday table.

If you’re looking for a sweet potato casserole recipe, we have a great one!

We put rows of marshmallows and rows of crunchy pecan topping so that everybody gets what they want.

So fancy looking too.
