To me, nothing says that it is Thanksgiving better than a good sweet potato pie.

For years I was intimidated to even give this pie a try and so every year I would ask my mom to make this treat for me so that I could enjoy it as the perfect dessert to end a very filling meal. That was until a few years ago when I decided to watch my mom make these pies and I was floored at how easy they are to make. The hardest part is preparing the sweet potatoes…that is if you think boiling potatoes until they are soft is a difficult task…so in other words nothing it really hard about this recipe.

Give this recipe a try and feel free to adjust the spice measurements to your own personal taste.

Easy Sweet Potato Pie Ingredients:

  • 4 to 5 large sweet potatoes
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 (frozen) prepared pie crust

Directions:

Preheat oven 350 degrees F.

In large pot cover sweet potatoes (you may peel them before or after they are done) with water and bring to a boil until done. They will be very mashable.
