Sweet Potato Pie

My contribution to Thanksgiving  this year was baking my granny’s famous Sweet Potato Pie!   My granny was famous for her pies and my sister and I love baking them to keep the recipe, traditions,  and memories going.  I made a total of 6 pies this year and everyone loved them! We miss and love you grams! Xoxo



*This makes 5-6 pies!



6 large potatoes

2 1/2 cups sugar

1 1/2 stick butter

Pinch of cinnamon

Pinch nutmeg

1 tbsp vanilla extract

1 cup milk

6 store bought frozen pie crusts


1. Boil the potatoes until tender. When you stick a fork in them it should go in easy but you don't want them to fall apart. It took me about 35-40 mins.

2. Let the potatoes cool and then peel them.


3. Put the potatoes in a large bowl and mash them well. Melt the butter and pour it and the other ingredients in the bowl of potatoes. Stir until well mixed.


4. Spoon the potato mixture into the crust



5. Put into an oven preheated to 375 degrees. Cook for about 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out dry.
