Grandma’s Sweet Potato Pie

Bertha Tabor Fomby


My Grandma made the best Sweet Potato Pie that you have ever eaten. I had misplaced the recipe until last night. I knew how she made it but wasn’t sure about all the ingredients and amounts. The only thing I was sure of was “make it like mashed potatoes”.

Grandma's Sweet Potato Pie Recipe

  • 2 Sweet Potatoes or 1 large can of Sweet Potatoes
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • lots of butter
  • milk

Boil the potatoes, drain the water and put in a mixing bowl. Add the other ingredients while mixing. Use amount of milk to make the mixture the consistency of fluffy mashed potatoes.

Add the mixture to a unbaked pie crust. Cook slow at 350º until the toothpick comes out clean, about 1 hour.
