Sweet Potato Pie
|Sweet potatoes||2 Medium|
|Brown sugar||1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)|
|Evaporated milk||3⁄4 Can (7.5 oz) (1 Small Can)|
To prepare sweet potatoes, set oven at 350 degrees and bake potatoes for 1 1/2 to 2 hours until very soft.
Cut off about 1 inch of the pointed end of the potato to eliminate some of the stringy fiber.
Then peel and slice in about 1/2 inch slices, crosswise of the grain.
Mash with a potato masher before adding the other ingredients.
When mixing the custard with an electric mixer, the rest of the little pieces of stringy fiber will cling to the beaters, therefore, getting rid of almost all of them.
This is important for a smooth, creamy texture.
To mashed sweet potatoes, add all ingredients except evaporated milk.
Beat well with an electric mixer.
Reduce speed of mixer and gradually add the milk.
Pour into an unbaked pie crust and bake in a 350 degree oven for about 35 to 40 minutes, or until the custard appears set.
