Grandma's Garden Fresh Sweet Potato Pie
1 pie - serves 6 to 8. There will be nothing left over with this pie.
1 large washed, sweet potato from the vegetable garden.
2 large fresh eggs from the hen house.
1/2 cup fresh butter, room temperature (soft).
Use margarine in a pinch...!
1/2 cup fresh milk (check the expiration date or Bessy, the cow).
1 cup white granulated sugar from the pantry.
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon.
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg.
1 teaspoon vanilla extract.
1 (9 inch) unbaked pie crust.
- Wash and then boil the whole sweet potato, in its skin, for 45 to 50 minutes or until done.
Run cold water over the cooked sweet potato, and remove the skin.
- With a fork, break apart the sweet potato in a mixing bowl.
- Add the soft butter (or margarine), and mix well with your mixer.
Add the sugar, milk, eggs, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, and then whip.
Pour this whipped filling into an unbaked 9 inch pie shell.
- Bake at 350 degrees F., for 60 minutes. Check 10 minute before end of baking time. Test with a knife which is inserted in the center of the pie, comes out clean.
- Cool, then serve and stand back. The pie will disappear before your eyes. This will become a family favorite, anytime...!
Grandma's Baking Note: Pie will puff up like a balloon. It will then deflate a little, as it cools down. This is normal, per Grandpa."We cannot hold a torch to light another's
path without brightening our own."

Their cookbook, The Taste of Gloucester has sold over 200,000 copies. The Taste of Gloucester recipes are drawn from tradition and are variations of ethnic specialties for different occasions.
