Sweet Potato Pie

  • 2  9-inch pie shells (see my recipe "pastry for two single-crust pies")

Cooking Steps


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Bake whole potatos for 1 hour or until soft. When potatoes are cool enough to handle, peel and mash them in a large bowl. Add sugar, eggs, condenced milk, cream, butter, vanilla, and cinnamon; mix well.
  2. Prebake pie shells in the 350 F oven for 2 to 3 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from oven and pour sweet potato mixure evenly into shells. Bake for 35 minutes more or until firm.
