Ingredients

PIE FILLING:

2 c
sweet potato
1 c
sugar
4 Tbsp
butter, melted
2
eggs, large
1 tsp
vanilla extract
2 Tbsp
bourbon
1/4 tsp
salt
1/4 tsp
cinnamon
1/4 tsp
ginger
1 c
milk
1
unbaked pie shell

MERINGUE:

3
egg whites
1/4 c
sugar

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350 F.
2
Peel, cube and cooked sweet potatoes. I generally microwave cubed sweet potatoes for about 4 to 7 minutes in micro safe dish with a little bit of water.
3
For the filling, using a mixer, combine sweet potatoes, 1 cup of sugar, melted butter, eggs, vanilla or Bourbon, salt, and spices. Mix thoroughly.
4
Add the milk and continue to mix. Pour the filling into the pie crust and bake for 35 to 45 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
5
Place the pie on a rack and cool to room temperature before covering with meringue.
6
For meringue, use Whisk attachment on mixer, beat the egg whites until soft peaks form; beat in 1 tablespoon at a time of 1/4 C sugar.
7
Continue beating until the sugar dissolves and mixture is glossy and stiff, but not dry. With a spatula, spoon the meringue onto the pie, forming peaks.
8
Make sure the meringue touches the crust all around. Sprinkle with a pinch of granulated sugar. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until delicately browned. Cool and serve.

Cooks Tip: Meringue can be replaced with cool whip or homemade whipping cream! Yummy home made is the BEST! :) Enjoy!
