Who doesn’t love a great Thanksgiving pie? Our favorites are pumpkin and pecan. However, I know a lot of people love sweet potato pie.
So, for today’s post, we’re sharing Kim’s easy sweet potato pie recipe. As the name implies, it’s really simple to put together.
To get to the recipe card and detailed instructions scroll through post. For now, let’s get started!
How to make a sweet potato pie recipe?
The hardest part is preparing the potatoes. Now, if you have a pressure cooker, you can use that to cook them.
Check out our Instant Pot sweet potatoes post for more details. As soon as the taters have cooled a little, use a peeler to peel them and set them aside.
First, preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. and place a raw pie crust into a nine (9) inch pie pan.
Next, place the cooked and peeled sweet potatoes into a glass mixing bowl with the softened butter.
Use a hand mixer to blend the potatoes and remove any potential lumps.
After that, crack the eggs and add them to the bowl. Then pour in the milk, pumpkin pie spice, sugar, and vanilla extract.
Using your hand mixer, blend the ingredients until a smooth and creamy batter forms.
Afterward, transfer the pie batter to the uncooked crust and place it into the oven to bake for fifty (50) to sixty (60) minutes or until it sets.
It should resemble a cooked pumpkin pie and have a custard like appearance when done.
Last, let the sweet potato pie cool for at least two (2) hours before slicing. Otherwise, it will fall apart.
That’s it, your sweet potato pie recipe is done! Kim and I hope you enjoy the dessert and wish you all the best 🙂
