Sweet Potato Pie

I’m a fan of sweet potatoes and typically eat them in savoury recipes. Sweet potato fries? Yes, please!

A friend suggested that I make her recipe for Sweet Potato Pie and I said I’d give it a try. I was curious to see how it compared to my all-time fave, Pumpkin Pie.

We all loved it. I didn’t even tell my daughters that it wasn’t Pumpkin Pie. They probably wouldn’t have eaten it had they known. I added some ice cream on top and served them a plate. The pie was devoured in a matter of a day.

This recipe makes two 9-inch pies.

Add the eggs, cooked mashed sweet potatoes, sugar, salt, pumpkin pie spice and evaporated milk to a large bowl. Beat together with an electric mixer on low until combined. Pour into two pie shells.

Bake at 425F for 15 minutes. Turn the heat down to 350F and bake for another 45 minutes. Cool before serving.

Top it with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream. It’s an amazing way to end a meal.
