Sweet Potato Pie Recipe (as adapted from "A Picture of Freedom")

10 Ratings: 4.5
A Sweet Potato Pie recipe as adapted from the book "A Picture of Freedom - The Diary of Clotee, a Slave Girl"
Sweet Potato Pie
2 pie crust shells
2 sweet potatoes
2 cups sugar
¼ lb. butter
2 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. cinnamon
½ tsp. nutmeg
½ cup milk
4 eggs

  1. Cook sweet potatoes in boiling water for approximately 1 hour (until soft through-and-through as tested using a skewer)
  2. Peel sweet potatoes and mash them together with the butter
  3. Mix in the sugar and spices
  4. Beat eggs and milk together in a separate bowl, then slowly add mixture to the potatoes (I recommend combining the ingredients by hand rather than using a mixer)
  5. Pour potatoes into 2 pie crust shells
  6. Bake on 425º for 15 minutes
  7. Bake on 350º for 45 minutes or until firm (use skewer in middle of pie to test that it comes out clean)
  8. Cool until room temperature and then serve with whipped cream

Good recipe. I am not big fan of cinnamon, fall/winter dessert, but this was excellent. Very light too! Thanks!

Great pie -- tasty but not overly sweet, so you can eat a lot of it.

Excellent recipe. Moist and sweet but not too much. @PeccatorImpius thanks for the pie!
