I had never tried sweet potato pie before this recipe. My husband's relatives, who are from the South, rave about it. So, it's a keeper! This has the same spice flavors as pumpkin pie, but it's very different. It's good on it's own or with some ice cream on top. If you've never tried sweet potato pie, you should try this.

Easy to make, using ready made crust. Great way to use left over cooked/baked sweet potato.
Mix all ingredients except pastry. Pour into pie pan. Bake in preheated hot oven (425 degrees F) for 10 minutes, reduce heat to 350 degrees F and bake for 25-30 minutes longer or until set.

Southern comfort food that has a smooth custard texture that fills the home with the aromatic smells of the holiday. This pie takes me back in time when I spent the holidays at my Grandparents' home.
In large mixing bowl, combine flour and sugar. Add potatoes, eggs, corn syrup, nutmeg, salt, butter and evaporated milk; beat well. Pour into pastry shell and bake at 350 degrees F for 55-60 minutes.

I just use Libby's famous pumpkin pie recipe (on back of the can), but substitute sweet potatoes for the pumpkin. (12/08/2006)
Heat oven to 350 degrees F, add all ingredients in large mixing bowl adding syrup last. Stir well. Pour into shell and bake 40-45 minutes or until knife inserted into center comes out clean.
