A guest post from Holly:
Sweeeeet potato pie! I am baking like crazy. A friend asked me what started my newfound interest in cooking — I said it was the purchase of my bread maker and the ease in which I could make homemade breads, pie crusts and pizza crusts — but my husband felt strongly that it was the invitation to become a guest blogger on Brewers Organics! I think it was both. Regardless, I made the most delicious sweet potato pie and my family went crazy for it! Of course, the sweet potatoes were from Brewers Organics…
For this lovely pie, sweet potatoes are boiled, peeled and mashed together with butter, sugar, milk and eggs, then seasoned with nutmeg, cinnamon and vanilla.
1 (1 pound) sweet potato
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup milk
2 eggs 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 (9 inch) unbaked pie crust (which I made in the bread maker!)
1.Boil sweet potato whole in skin for 40 to 50 minutes, or until done. Run cold water over the sweet potato, and remove the skin.
2. Break apart sweet potato in a bowl. Add butter, and mix well with mixer. Stir in sugar, milk, eggs, nutmeg, cinnamon and vanilla. Beat on medium speed until mixture is smooth. Pour filling into an unbaked pie crust.
3. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 55 to 60 minutes, or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Pie will puff up like asoufflé, and then will sink down as it cools.
