Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Smooth and sweet with the right blend of spices, this sweet potato pie is delicious! I can see why Dorothy sells so many at Thanksgiving. This pie is very easy to make but looks very impressive when served. It's a great alternative to pumpkin pie. Your friends and family will be happy to see this on your holiday dessert table.

Ingredients

4 medium
sweet potatoes
1 c
evaporated milk
4 large
eggs
2 c
sugar
1/2 tsp
salt
1/2 tsp
nutmeg
1/4 tsp
cinnamon
1/8 tsp
allspice
1 stick
butter, room temperature
2 tsp
vanilla extract
1 pkg
9 inch pie crust (I make my own)

Step-By-Step

1Wash and peel sweet potatoes. In a large heavy pot add peeled and cubed sweet potatoes and salt. Cook on medium high until potatoes are fork tender. (Do not let them fall apart.) When done drain potatoes in a colander and pour into a large mixing bowl.
2Add butter to hot potatoes and mix until smooth. Add sugar and mix. Add your eggs and blend well. Pour in your milk and continue mixing. Once your mixture is blended well add vanilla, nutmeg, cinnamon, and allspice. Taste to make sure it is sweet enough for you. You can add more sugar, nutmeg or cinnamon at this time if you would like more. (Some of my customers like their pie very sweet and some not so sweet.)
3Pour into two 9" pie shells and bake for 1 hour in a 350 degree oven.
