Sweet Potato Pie


  • 1 (1 pound) sweet potato, with skin

  • ½ cup butter, softened

  • 1 cup white sugar

  • ½ cup milk

  • 2 large eggs

  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 (9 inch) unbaked pie crust


  • Place whole sweet potato in pot and cover with water; bring to a boil. Boil until tender when pierced with a fork, 40 to 50 minutes.

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Remove sweet potato from the pot and run under cold water. Remove and discard skin.

  • Break sweet potato flesh apart and place in a bowl. Add butter and mix with an electric mixer until well combined.

  • Add sugar, milk, eggs, nutmeg, cinnamon, and vanilla; beat on medium speed until mixture is smooth.

  • Pour filling into unbaked pie crust.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean, 55 to 60 minutes.

  • Remove from the oven and let cool before serving.


Pie will be puffed up like a soufflé when you remove it from the oven, but will deflate as it cools.
