Sweet Potato Pie

Sweet Potato Pie

1 1/2 lbs. sweet potatoes

4 T. melted butter

1/2 C. brown sugar

1/2 C. sugar

1/3 C. honey

2 well beaten eggs

1/2 t. ginger

1/4 t. nutmeg

1/2 t. ground cloves

1/2 t. cinnamon

1 C. cream or evaporated milk

1 unbaked 9 inch pie crust

Wash the sweet potatoes and put tem in a pan covered with water. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to medium. Cook until potatoes are soft, about 45 minutes. Drain, cool and peel potatoes.

Mash the sweet potatoes with the sugars, honey and butter. Mix very well. Add in the eggs and spices. Blend well. Stir in milk or cream and blend well.

Pour into the crust and bake for 10 minutes at 400° F. Reduce temperature to 350° F. and bake for about 30 minutes or until the center is firm.

Optional: Sprinkle 1 C. pecans on top of the filling before baking. Some may sink in but that’s okay.
