Ingredients * 1 pound 3 ounces sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed

Put cubed potatoes into steamer basket and place steamer basket into a

are fork tender. Mash with potato masher and set aside.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Place sweet potatoes in the bowl of a stand mixer and beat with the
paddle attachment. Add yogurt, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, yolks,
and salt, to taste, and beat until well combined. Pour this batter
into the pie shell and place onto a sheet pan. Sprinkle pecans on top
and drizzle with maple syrup.
Bake for 50 to 55 minutes or until the custard reaches 165 to 180
degrees. Remove from oven and cool. Keep refrigerated after cooling.
