Sweet Potato PieContributed by Mandi Martin
2 cups sugar
1 stick butter
1 pinch cinnamon
1 pinch nutmeg
1 store-bought pie crust, or your can just line a pan with vanilla wafers instead
1/2 cup milk
PreparationBoil the potatoes until tender. When you stick a fork in them it should go in easy but you don't want them to fall apart.
Let the potatoes cool and then peel them.
Put the potatoes in a large mixing bowl and mash them thoroughly with a potatoe masher. Melt the butter and pour it and the other ingredients in the bowl of potatoes. Stir until well mixed.
Whether you used a ready made pie crust or just cookies, pour the potatoes mixture into the crust.
Put into an oven preheated to 375 degrees. Cook for about 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out dry.
I like to eat the pie while still hot. It's good cold too though.
If you want you can make a meringue topping by blending confectionary sugar with egg whites. After the pie is almost done, spread the meringue thinly across the top. Continue baking until the meringue turns light brown. If you use the meiangue, you can add the egg yokes to the pie if you like
