Sweet Potato Pie Recipe
This is a “must-have” on our Thanksgiving table. Fortunately for me, my husband has this recipe down and he makes two of these pies for us every year. It’s so nice to have something I don’t have to worry about fixing on Thanksgiving myself.
- 2 cups sweet potatoes, cooked and drained
- 4 tablespoons margarine, melted
- 3 eggs
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
- 3/4 cup milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 9″ pie shell, baked (use the easy pie crust recipe)
- 1/4 cup chopped pecans (optional)
Mash together your cooked sweet potatoes with melted butter or margarine. Whip in eggs, sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. When well mixed add in the milk and vanilla. Pour it all into your baked pie shell and heat in the oven for about 40 minutes at 350 degrees F. It’s done when the center is somewhat firmed up. Scatter chopped pecans over the top of the pie before serving (optional).
