SUGAR FREE SWEET POTATO PIE

JANE LOUISE Recipe

By JANE LOUISE lovinspoonful

I love sweet potato pie but needed one I could eat on my "no sugar added" eating plan. I've served this every Thanksgiving and my sons like it just as well as the sugared kind.

NOTE: USE ONLY FRESH SWEET POTATOES, not canned. Canned usually has sugar in them. To cook sweet potatoes, peel 5 medium potatoes and place all of them in large zip lock bag. Cook in microwave with bag sealed for 7-8 minutes on high. Bag will expand but it won't explode. Poke potatoes with fork to check tenderness. Mash with beater immmediately but let cool before putting in the recipe.

    Sorry Paul, some poor shmuck already roped me...about 31 years ago. I don't know if you have tried this pie yet but it is a good one. And, as you probably know, the sweet potatoes are so good for you.

    I tried that fish batter on some Tipilia and pan fried it. I liked it because it was light and flaky. I think it fluffs up more when it's deep fried. AND since it has 3/4 corn starch which is very good for the muscles and has no calories, then only a little flour is actually eaten. I am going to try my white whole wheat flour with it since I really don't eat white flour usually. Have a great 4th! I'm making my Fireman's Ribs

    Great I'm glad you liked it! And yes it will fluff up more if you deep fry it. This pie is awesome! Who said sweets are bad for you!?
