Holiday Potato Pie

Renita Dixon


I run a catering business. This recipe is a client favorite. Using fresh sweet potatoes is the key to a perfect pie. If the potatoes cut easily, they are fresh.

How to Make Holiday Potato Pie


  • 1boil the potatoes until they are soft. Drain all the water from them and pour them into a bowl. (potatoes should be hot)
  • 2Mash them and whip them together with the butter and the buttermilk until they are smooth.
  • 3Add the extracts and the lemon juice, and apple pie spice. Adjust sugar and spice to your taste. We like a sweeter pie around here.
  • 4In a separate bowl, beat the four eggs, and stir them into the potato mixture. Make sure the mixture has cooled some, so it won't cook the eggs prematurely.
  • 5Pour mixture in unbaked deep pie shells. Don't overfill. Bake 40 minutes at 350 degrees or until pie is golden brown. Let it rest for 25 minutes before cutting it.
