Sweet Potato Pie
3 lbs. Yams
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 can evaporated milk
2 eggs
1 1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp vanilla
1 stick of butter
Dash of cinnamon
Pre-heat your oven to 400°F. Boil the yams with the skin on until a fork or butter knife causes the yams to easily break apart when inserted. Cool yams slightly. Then place in a colander and run cold water over them to assist you with removing the skins since the yams will still be pretty hot. Beat yams with mixer on medium speed, stopping frequently to remove strings from the beaters. Once the strings are removed, add butter and continue to mix. Then add remaining ingredients. You may need to adjust the nutmeg and sugar to your tastes. I like my pie sweet with a good amount of nutmeg! Continue mixing your batter until it has a nice smooth consistency. The batter should not be thin or runny, and it should not be too thick either. If too thick, try adding a little more evaporated milk (by the tablespoon) until the batter is smooth. Pour your batter into your favorite unbaked 9 or 10 inch pie shell, sprinkle a dash of cinnamon on the top and bake for 50 minutes to 1 hour.(Tip: Brush the edges of your pie shell with ice water to prevent it from burning before the pie is actually done). Brown specs on the top of the pie are an indication that your pie is done. You can also insert a knife in the middle of the pie, and if it comes out clean it's done! Let cool for at least 1 hour before cutting and serving. This pie is simply delicious when served slightly warmed by itself, or go ahead and throw caution (and your diet) to the wind by placing a large scoop of French vanilla ice cream on top of a nice warm slice! I really like my pie nice and cold right out of the frig after its set over night with a tall glass of ice cold milk.
