Sweet Potato Pie Recipe from "Hidden Powers"

This is the sweet potato pie recipe that I am famous for much like the character Jean in Book 1 of "Hidden Powers."

One year we made about 12 of them and there were no leftovers.

You need:

1 (1 pound) sweet potato
1/2 cup of butter (softened)
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1/2 cup of milk
2 eggs
1 tsp pumpkin spice
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 unbaked pie crust (9in)

1) Boil sweet potato whole in skin for 40 - 50 minutes (until done). Run cold water over the potato and remove skin.

2) Mash potato in bowl. Add butter (mix). Mix in sugar, milk, eggs, pumpkin spice and vanilla. Mix until smooth.

3) Pour filling into unbaked pie crust. Add small chunks of butter on top.

4) Bake @ 350 degrees for 55 - 60 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Pie will puff up as it cooks and then sink as it cools.

Enjoy. I will have to see if I can find a picture of it. I am not known for taking pictures of my food, just for eating it. Happy cooking.
