My sister, Heather, has many fond memories of Sweet Potato Pie from our childhood but it has to be juuuuuuust right. This recipe is the right one so I’m posting this recipe for Heather!

Sweet Potato is the Star
The star of this Sweet Potato Pie recipe is a large sweet potato that has been peeled and boiled until soft. You’ll want about a cup of mashed sweet potato so you can use one large sweet potato or a couple smaller sweet potatoes.

If your sweet potatoes make a little more than a cup of mashed sweet potato, it’s okay to go ahead and put it in. A little extra sweet potato never hurt anybody.

Light On The Spices
We’ll go light on the spices in this pie so that the sweet potato can really shine. We want the spices to complement the sweet potato and not overpower it so we’ll go with a 1/2 teaspoon of ground nutmeg and 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon.

And don’t skip the vanilla. Vanilla adds a wonderful flavor and richness to this Sweet Potato Pie.

To Top or Not to Top
We usually don’t top our Sweet Potato Pie with anything but you can definitely top it with some sweetened whipped cream if you’d like. Cinnamon whipped cream would also be excellent on this pie. Or even ice cream.

Whatever you top it with, this Sweet Potato Pie will be a great addition to your holiday table.

It’s expensive, but the Kobold VR300 provides an impressive vacuuming experience that we think could rival that of a conventional vacuum cleaner, but it’s not as smart as some rivals – yet.
