Sweet Potato Pie

This is totally yummy – I had never had sweet potato pie until the KoD asked me to make it for him almost 2 years ago, and my sister-in-law very graciously provided me with her recipe, that she got from a friend….

You will need:

2 eggs
1 cup of sugar
1 tsp. of salt
1/8 tsp. of nutmeg
1 tsp. of cinnamon
1 cup of milk (or pareve substitute – I use Rice Dream)
2 Tablespoons of margarine, melted
1 1/2 Cups cooked, mashed sweet potatoes (I usually nuke them in the microwave until soft, and then peel them)
1 8” pie shell (Or just pie pan, no pie shell necessary)
White marshmallows.

Preheat Oven to 450. Beat eggs slightly.  Add sugar, salt, spices and milk.  Add margarine to sweet potatoes, or stir in while hot.  Blend with milk and egg mixture.  Pour into pie shell.  You may use no pie shell at all, or even double and put in a 2-qt. Pyrex.  Bake in oven at 450 for 10 minutes.  Reduce to 350 for 30-40 minutes until filling is firm.  May put marshmallows on top and brown in 450 oven for a few minutes until light brown.  Do not overload the marshmallows.

Please Note – I once used multi-coloured marshmallows and let’s just say while the pie tasted wonderful it looked “interesting”.

  3. My version uses pumpkin pie spices, no marshmallow but whipped cream goes great with it. Haven’t made it in years though!

  4. I feel weird about the marshmallows. Otherwise, it’s similar to my recipe.

  5. this is an old southern dish called “sweet potato casserole”. We’ve always served it at Thanksgiving. I of course hate marshmallows so now that I am an adult I make a crispy walnut topping instead 😉 a tip though” if you add a couple of eggs it firms up a little more like a custard/pie
