Sweet Potato Pie Recipe


Nothing says “Soul Food” like Sweet Potato Pie. It’s the perfect dessert to serve at the next Martin Luther King, Jr. celebration which is held on the third Monday in January. Since banks and many businesses are closed on this day, it’s the perfect time to bake one of these delicious pies.
””
Although most desserts aren’t considered healthy, this one contains sweet potatoes, which, according to the Center for Science in the Pubic Interest (CSPI), ranks #1 in nutrition compared to other vegetables. Sweet potatoes are an excellent source of beta-carotine, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Copper, Folate (one of the B Vitamins), and fiber. So this dessert is actually quasi-healthy and is one that can be eaten with little or no guilt.

8 Servings

1 1/2 pounds sweet potatoes, (about 2 medium), boiled and mashed
1 cup sugar
1 tablespoon flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 eggs
1/4 cup melted butter
3/4 cup half and half
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg

1 9" unbaked pie shell

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°.

  2. Place the sweet potatoes in a mixing bowl.

  3. Beat in the sugar, flour, salt, eggs, and melted butter.

  4. Continue beating until smooth.

  5. Slowly mix in the half and half, vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg.

  6. Pour the mixture into the pie shell and bake until golden brown and set, 35-40 minutes.

  7. Remove from the oven to a cooling rack. Serve with sweetened whipped cream.
