Sweet Potato Pie

Comment on this recipe

Found this recipe in my mother's old recipe box and have been making this every Thanksgiving.

Ingredients

5 medium sweet potatoes
3 to 4 quarts of water
1-1/4 sticks butter, melted
1-1/2 cups sugar
2-1/2 teaspoons nutmeg
2 teaspoons vanilla
3 eggs
1-1/2 tablespoons baking powder
1/3 cup evaporated milk
Two 9-inch pie crusts

Instructions

Wash and peel sweet potatoes. Place in a large pot, covering with water. Simmer for 60 minutes until ready for mashing. Cream the potatoes, removing all of the lumps. Add the butter, sugar, nutmeg, vanilla and eggs, mixing well. Add the baking powder to the milk and stir into the potatoes. Pour the ingredients into pie shells and bake at 350 degrees for 50 minutes or until firm. Check for doneness by inserting knife in the middle of pie and when it comes out clean, the pie is done. Add miniature marshmallows to top and brown in broiler. Cool and serve. Makes 12-14 slices.
