C-Money's Sweet Potato Pie...Ripped off from Nicole...

Sweet potato pie is a must have for the holidays. Our mother's amazing recipe is now locked away in some compartment in her mind never to be seen again, so a bitch's sister has been searching for a replacement recipe to round out our holiday feasting. We had an intense taste testing during Thanksgiving and the following recipe was the winner!

Enjoy!

Sweet Potato Pie
2 cups cooked mashed fresh sweet potatoes
4 tablespoons butter
1 cup sugar
3 eggs
1 tsp cinnamon
½ tsp nutmeg
¾ cup Horizon Organic Milk
1 tsp vanilla

Mix & stuff…pour into crust
Bake at 375 for 35-40 minutes

Yum!

Tried this recipe last night... did it with a graham cracker crust (let me guess, not the right crust right?) and melted mini marshmallows on top... pure heaven, so light and satisfying! Thanks so much for sharing it, we'll be making this one regularly from now on.

Help me out here...I've never actually seen or heard of sweet potato pie outside of maybe a passing reference on the Jeffersons. Is this a dessert, or a side dish? This fall in Provincetown I had sweet potato pudding at breakfast in a b&b..is this pie the same idea?

CRob, sweet potato pie is a classic southern dessert. I have never had sweet potato pudding but it is probably the same thing except the pie will have a crust unlike the pudding. If you want to try something else southern and incredible, find a recipe for carrott souffle'. In cre di ble! Tak ecare and Merry Christmas!

mnnnn... I'm a late convert to sweetpotato pie. Rest of the family wants pumpkin, so pumpkin it'll be. But I might just make me some sweetpotato pie just to have for breakfasts. Shoot, if it's just me eatin it, then I'm going to add a little ginger, and throw a handful of coconut into that crust! No, it won't be C-Money's any more, but it'll be some Good Eating!
