My friend Jo shared Nita's great recipe for Sweet Potato Pie. When I spoke with Nita she said I could share it. I know you will love this. This pie is easy and so good. My Grandson JT2 loved it.
Just a couple of things about this recipe. First, most sweetened condensed milk is gluten free. About 90% of the varieties. But to be on the safe side check the label and/or manufacturer. Also, for those of you who like dairy free, then check out my recipe for making sweetened condensed milk gluten free and my way.
The original recipe calls for sugar but I use coconut sugar because it does not raise your blood sugar so much. Also, I use gluten free pie crusts. I was not happy with the pie crusts this time. They were quite hard and difficult to eat. I will definitely try another brand next time.
3 medium sweet potatoes baked and mashed
2 cups of sugar or substitute equivalent in coconut sugar
1 can of sweetened condensed milk
3 large eggs
2 teaspoons of real g/f vanilla
1 stick of butter softened g/f
Bake sweet potatoes in the oven until done. Cool, peel and mash.
Mix all the rest of the ingredients in bowl with a mixer.
Pour into 2 g/f pie shells deep dish because it makes a lot.
Rim the crust with foil.
Bake at 350 for 40 minutes.
Remove Foil after baking and cool.
