Yams/Sweet potatoes 3 Pound
Vegetable oil 3 Tablespoon
Eggs 3 Large , beaten
Condensed milk 1/2 Cup (8 tbs)

1. Preheat the oven to 350 F.



2. Poke holes in clean hams, rub them with vegetable oil and place it in an oven to bake for about 2 hours.

3. Cool the yams, cut the ends off to get rid of the strings and then scoop the flesh into a big bowl.

4. Beat the flesh with the beaters. Take the beaters out every once in a while and wash them up to get rid of the strings. Continue to do this until you get no or very less strings on the beaters.

8. Line your pie dishes with pie crust. Cover with parchment paper and pour some rice. Blind bake the shells for 10 to 15 minutes depending on the thickness.

9. Remove the parchment paper and rice. Fill the pie shells with equal amount of filling and place them in the oven. Bake for 55 inutes to an hour or until well done.



10. Slice and serve the pies with whipped cream or ice cream. Enjoy.
