Classic Sweet Potato Pie
  • Cooking Time: 45-50
  • Servings: 6-8
  • Preparation Time: 1 hour 15 minutes
  • 3 large sweet potatoes (the really orange ones - yams less sweet & more startchy)
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tbls pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar (I used moscavado)
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 3 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp ground cloves
  • 2 frozen deep dish Pet Ritz pie crusts
  1. Preheat oven to 415 F. Bake potatoes until they can be pierced easily with a knife. Let cool to room temperature. Remove peels. In a large bowl, combine potatoes, milks, eggs, and vanilla with blender on high speed for approximately 2 minutes, scraping the sides periodically. Add brown sugar and blend more. Add remaining dry ingredients & mix on high for approximately 2 minutes. Divide batter between pie shells, pie shells on a baking sheet; sprinkle with a little nutmeg for decoration, if desired & bake in a 375 F oven for approximately 45-50 minutes. Cool.
  2. NOTE: I bake my potatoes, as it greatly improves the flavor and retains more of the potatoes vitamins, more than boiling the potatoes. But you can boil if you'd like.
This is a family recipe, with just a couple of added tweaks by myself.
