This sweet potato pie is a favorite at my bakery and a favorite at home at well. For best results, use fresh sweet potatoes instead of canned and bake them instead of boiling. Baking intensifies the flavor.

Ingredients

1
unbaked 9" deep dish pie crust
2 1/2 c
mashed fresh sweet potatoes
1 stick
salted butter-melted
2
large eggs- room temperature
1/2-1 c
granulated sugar
1/2 c
half and half- room temperature
1 Tbsp
all purpose flour
2 tsp
ground cinnamon
1 tsp
ground nutmeg
1 tsp
ground ginger
1 Tbsp
vanilla extract

Step-By-Step

1In a large mixing bowl, combine sweet potatoes and butter. Beat on medium speed with hand mixer until well combined.

2Add eggs, sugar, and half and half. Beat until combined. Sweet potatoes have different levels of sweetness so when adding sugar,start with 1/2 cup and then increase to taste.

3Add remaining ingredients and mix well. Pour mixture into pie crust. Place pie on cookie sheet and bake in a preheated 325 degree oven for 1 hour or until filling is set and does not jiggle. If crust starts to brown too fast, cover pie with foil.

4Place pie on cooling rack until it reaches room temperature. Serve with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
