I love pies, so I am constantly developing ones I can eat too. I try using Splenda or Stevia when an where I can. My family liked this one, I hope you will too. P.S. ...hahaha, I have had more compliments on my thumb nail. That is so funny...yes, I do my own manicures.

How To Make cin's sweet potato pie

  • 1
    I make my own pie pastry (crust) using:
  • 2
    Preheat oven to 350 dF. Make pie crust and bake for 5 to 7 minutes, then set aside to cool while mixing up pie ingredients.
  • 3
    Open 2 small cans of sweet potatoes and drain one can. Mix the 2-cans together in a lg mixing bowl and smash well.
  • 4
    In a small dish or bowl whisk the 2 eggs together well.
  • 5
    Add eggs and all other ingredients into the bowl with the smashed sweet potatoes, (except pecans and nutmeg)..mixing well with a small electric hand mixer.
  • 6
    Pour into pie crust, sprinkle lightly with nutmeg and cover with pecan halves.

    Bake for approximately 50 minutes. You may have to cover edges of pie crust with foil to keep from getting to dark. Remove from oven when done and let cool on wire rack.
