Dot’s Sweet Potato Pie

Tags: ,

Bright and refreshing, this fruit salad shows off the flavors of fresh melon, strawberries, and mint — a real treat during the spring and summer months. In the winter, citrus and winter berries can be easily substituted for the melon and strawberries.

Yield :  6 to 8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup mashed cooked sweet potatoes
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • 1/3 cup milk (whole or skim)
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 unbaked (10-inch) deep-dish pie shell

Instructions

  • Combine the sweet potatoes, sugar, eggs, butter, milk, nutmeg, baking powder and salt in a large mixing bowl. Beat until well combined. Pour into the pie shell.
  • Bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes or until the filling is set. Serve hot or cold with whipped cream.
