Hi everyone! Today's recipe is a very easy and delicious Sweet Potato Pie, it goes perfect with your Thanksgiving Dinner, so hopefully you will give it a try, you won't regret it, it's simply delicious!
Makes 2 9in pies
- 2 9in pre-made pie shells/crust
- 3 cup mashed Sweet Potatoes
- 2 Large Eggs
- 1 cup evaporated milk (for a thinner consistency feel free to use the whole can of milk 12oz)
- 1 cup brown sugar
- ½ cup softened butter (113g = 1 stick)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- ½ tsp cinnamon
- ¼ tsp nutmeg
- ¼ tsp salt
- pinch cloves
Preheat the oven to 350ºF.
I cooked the sweet potatoes in water for about 40 minutes or until soft. Then peel them off, and mash them. You only need 3 cups of mashed potatoes, while the mashed sweet potatoes are still warm, combine them with the butter, sugar and all the spices, mix well until well combined. (you can use a food processor if you like!) Then add in the milk and the eggs, stir well until everything is well incorporated. (feel free to mix in the food processor for a softer texture, I like to do it by hand!)
Pour the sweet potato mixture into your pre-made pie shells, this will make two 9in pies, and cook them at 350ºF for 60 minutes. After 60 minutes, turn off the oven, but keep the pies in there for another 10 more minutes.
Remove the pies from the oven, and let them cool completely before serving them. Enjoy!
