"Super easy and sooooooo delicious! I added a cup of pecan pieces to the top, just like granny used to do, to make it a complete Southern dish! Wonderful for holiday meals or anytime!"

- jillyr1059


Are you making this? 
1 pound sweet potato
1/2 cup butter; softened
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup milk
2 eggs Eggs
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 (9 inch) unbaked pie crust

Original recipe makes 12



1. Boil sweet potato whole in skin for 40 to 50 minutes, or until done. Run cold water over the sweet potato, and remove the skin.

2. Break apart sweet potato in a bowl. Add butter, and mix well with mixer. Stir in sugar, milk, eggs, nutmeg, cinnamon and vanilla. Beat on medium speed until mixture is smooth. Pour filling into an unbaked pie crust.

3. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 55 to 60 minutes, or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Pie will puff up like a souffle, and then will sink down as it cools.

"A variation on this recipe  Thankfully this delectable sweet potato pie with a cinnamon roll crust will come to the rescue at your Thanksgiving table. It’s less sweet than pumpkin pie, which is great for its sugary counterparts like marshmallows and cinnamon rolls. But like pumpkin pie, it has that wonderfully smooth texture that balances oh so well with a flaky, tender pie crust. Plus, it’s super easy to make and only requires simple ingredients."

Very good recipe! It's not too sweet. The only thing that I changed was adding a half of a stick of butter instead of the whole thing. Came out delicious.
