How To Make Old Fashioned Sweet Potato Pie
Sweet potatoes are used for a variety of main course dishes. But this time, we've made it into this delicious mouth-watering pie.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
For the filling, using an electric hand mixer, combine the potatoes, 1 cup of the sugar, butter, eggs, vanilla (or bourbon), salt, and spices.
- Mix thoroughly.
- Add the milk and continue to mix.
- Pour the filling into the pie crust and bake for 35-45 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
- Place the pie on a rack and cool to room temperature before covering with meringue.
- For the meringue, using an electric mixer, beat the egg whites until soft peaks form.
Beat in the remaining ¼ cup of sugar (1 tablespoon at a time).
- Continue beating until the sugar dissolves and the mixture is glossy and stiff, but not dry.
- With a rubber spatula, spoon the meringue onto the pie, forming peaks.
- Make sure the meringue touches the crust all around.
- Sprinkle with a pinch of granulated sugar.
- Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until delicately browned.
- Cool and serve.
