Salt 1/2 Teaspoon
Unbaked pie 9 inch pie crust
Whipped cream 30 Gram (Optional)

2. In a large mixing bowl, stir together mashed cooked sweet potatoes, light brown sugar, milk, well-beaten eggs, salt, and ground cinnamon. Beat well, until completely blended.

3. Pour into unbaked pie crust. Cover the top outer edge of the pie crust with strips of aluminum foil to protect it from burning.

4. Bake for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees F, and bake 35 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.

This is a gorgeous pie, and it tastes wonderful. It is a perfect addition to your holiday table! Enjoy! Love, Betty
