Recipe For Easy And Simple Sweet Potato Pie
Sweet potato pie features a milder taste than pumpkin pie, along with the consistency is a bit diverse. It is actually commonly a southern dessert, however it is a good alternative to pumpkin pie or pecan pie anywhere. This recipe is derived from the owner of a bakery in the South Hamptons. This version doesn’t demand baking the sweet potatoes initially. This whole recipe could be put together in the time it takes to pre-heat your oven, also in our busy lives, which is a welcome relief.
What You Will Need:
(1) 9-in refrigerated pie crust (unbaked)
(1) 16 oz can of sweet potatoes (drained and mashed)
1/2 cup salted butter (softened to room temp)
3/4 cup sugar
(1) 5-ounce can evaporated milk
2 large eggs
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla
What To Do:
First thing you will want to do is to preheat your oven to 350 degrees. While it is preheating we will mix all of our ingredients together.
For the most part this is a “dump and go” recipe since you just mix all the ingredients together and bake. Before you dump everything, stir together the sweet potatoes and the butter until the mixture is smooth. Next dump in the remaining ingredients: the sugar, evaporated milk, eggs, nutmeg, cinnamon, and vanilla.
It is very important to mix all ingredients until smooth to prevent lumps and to evenly distribute the spices. You may do this by hand in case you should, but for those who have a mixer, feel free to use it. It is going to be considerably faster and your arm will not tire.
When the consistency of the filling is smooth, pour it in to the prepared pie crust.
Bake the pie for an hour or till the filling feels firm when lightly pressed with your fingertips. Once it is finished you may choose to top it with some whipped cream. Then just enjoy!
