  • 1 cup of flour
  • 2 cups of sugar
  • 3 eggs (large)
  • TBSP of cinnamon and nutmeg
  • 1 stick and a tbsp of butter
  • TSP of salt
  • Three original pie crusts.
  • Large bowl

First rinse potatoes with warm water. Get a large pot and boil water, put the potatoes in the boiling water and let boil for about at hour and a half. Until tender. While the potatoes are cooking turn the oven on 300. Sit the butter out on counter to soften. Once potatoes are done, let them cool off.

Peel all the skin off of the potatoes. Put them in a bowl and smash them with a potato smasher whisk or whatever you have. Try to get it creamy like mash potatoes. Add your butter, eggs, nutmeg, salt, cinnamon and a cup of sugar. Add in a half of cup of flour and stir. Then add the rest of the flour, mix well. Taste and see if it's tasting like that good old sweet potato pie. If you need more sugar add it. Adjust to your taste; add a little more of each to get that taste you want if needed.

All you need when it comes to making home cook meals is the right amount of love and soul that's the secret to great cooking. Now, that the entire pie filling is ready you are ready to fill in your pie crusts. Pour filling into to the pie crusts. Do not over fill, leave enough room inside the crust so that the pie will rise and not drip out of the pan inside the oven. Tip: You can spray a little butter flavor cooking spray into the crust to give it that butter tasting flavor.

Put the pies into the oven and let cook for an hour. When done the top of the pie should be a nice brown color. Let cool for a half an hour or serve fresh out of the oven. That's how you make sweet potato pie. Hope you enjoy and it's um, um, so good. Remember eat in moderation.
