Sweet Potato Pie traces its roots back to the Colonial days in American history. It was once served as a side dish before it became popular as a dessert. Do you wrinkle your nose at the texture and taste of sweet potatoes? But do you know how many A-vitamins you could get by eating the pie? Do you need something more to sweeten the deal? Top it with a layer of mini marshmallows and pretend it’s Thanksgiving.


Basic Pie Dough for a single-crust pie


  • 2 cups mashed sweet potatoes (about 3 medium whole potatoes),
  • 1⁄4 cup (1⁄2 stick) butter, softened,
  • 1 cup sugar,
  • 1⁄2 cup milk (evaporated or whole milk),
  • 2 whisked eggs,
  • 1 tsp cinnamon,
  • 1⁄2 tsp nutmeg,
  • 2 tsp vanilla.


  1. Make the Basic Pie Dough for a single-crust pie, crimped.
  2. Make the Filling: Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix them with a whisk or electric mixer until well blended and smooth. Pour into the crust shell.
  3. Bake at 375 degrees for 50 minutes to an hour, until filling sets.

About Sabina Witres

I loved pies already as a kid. I watched my mom making them and usually I was the one who took the first bite. Now, I make pies myself. I like to experiment with ingredients, sizes and shapes. It's always fun!
