Sweet Potato Pie is one of my husband's favorite pies. I found this recipe on a website called Grandparents.com. It is from a Betty Crocker recipe book.

My husband said I could make this pie any time. I was a little worried because it isn't exactly his mother's recipe. I like it better because of baking the potatoes rather than boiling them.

I hope you enjoy.

How to Make Roasted Sweet Potato Pie

Step-by-Step

  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Line cookie sheet with foil. Place sweet potatoes on cookie sheet. Roast for 1 hour or until tender. Cut potatoes in half. Scoop out pulp into medium bowl; discard skins. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F.
  2. Place pie crust in 9 1/2-inch glass deep-dish pie plate. Beat sweet potato pulp with electric mixer on medium speed until creamy. Add remaining ingredients; beat for 1 minute or until well blended. Pour filling into crust-lined plate.
  3. Bake for 1 hour 15 minutes or until knife inserted near center comes out clean. Cool completely on cooling rack, about 4 hours. Store in refrigerator.
  4. For a special topping on top of each slice of pie, fold flaked or shredded coconut into some sweetened whipped cream.

    NOTE: I put about 1/4 cup of cream of coconut in with the cream while whipping to enhance the coconut flavor.
