I have posted this recipe on different forums over the years and have received hundreds of emails from people who love it.
Sweet Potato Pie
3 large sweet potatoes – 2 1/2 pounds
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup butter
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon cloves
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 ( 12 ounce ) can evaporated milk
2 9 inch deep dish pie shells
Preheat oven and cookie sheet to 375 degrees. Boil sweet potatoes in water
until easily pierced with a fork. Cool slightly. Place cooked and peeled
potatoes in a large mixing bowl. Beat until smooth. Add butter and sugar
and beat well. Beat in eggs one at a time, mix in spices and milk. Pour
into unbaked pie shells. Bake on preheated cookie sheet near center of oven
70 minutes or until knife inserted comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.
These baked pies freeze well too. I have frozen one at Thanksgiving and thawed for Christmas and was still delicious.
