Holiday Sweet Potato Pie

This is a pie I made a few years back and it went over quite well. So give this a try. I always have a pumpkin pie and a sweet potato pie at Thanksgiving. Most people can not get over how they have a hard time telling the difference between the two pies.


2 cups mashed cooked sweet potatoes

1 cup whipping cream

1 cup milk

3 eggs, well beaten

1 cup brown sugar

Juice from one lemon

1 teaspoon of cinnamon

2 tablespoons of butter

1 frozen pie crust


( this recipe is a great way to use up left over sweet potatoes, but if you don’t have any cooked sweet potatoes on hand to mash, simply boil, bake, or microwave them in preparation for making this tasty pie.)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt the butter. In a separate large bowl, beat the eggs for 4 minutes. Once the eggs are well beaten, pour the butter and all remaining ingredients into the bowl with them and mix well. Pour into unbaked frozen pie crust. Bake for 45 minutes. Allow to sit for at least ten minutes before cutting. This traditional southern pie tastes great warm, hot, or chilled. Refrigerated any leftovers. Serve with plenty of whipped cream
