    Anyone have a good sweet potato pie recipe they don't mind sharing?

    When my mom passed (too young), we lost many great recipes as she was one of those cooks who just used recipes stored in her noggin.

    I have some beautiful organic sweet potatoes at home that are dying to become a yummy pie for me and my hunny! [​IMG]

    I've used this for fresh pumpkin, butternut squash, and sweet potatoes:

    Butternut Squash Pie

    3 Eggs
    2 C. Squash (Cooked, Mashed)
    1/2 C. Brown Sugar Packed
    1/4 C Granulated Sugar
    2 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice (I don't like it too spicy)
    2 tsp corn starch
    1/2 tsp. Salt
    1 can evaporated milk

    2 pie shells

    Pour mixture into raw crust, bake at 450 degrees for 15 minutes, reduce to 350 continue baking for 40 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean.

    You may want to use the blender or food processor on your cooked sw. potatoes to chop up the strings that they tend to have.

    Spoonbread and Strawberry Wine...what a great title! I'll have to try that one too. I have two pie crusts ready to go, so maybe I'll just try both recipes! I'm sure my bf won't mind if I bake two pies. [​IMG]
