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.

Total Time: Including baking, about 2 hours

Yield: 1 pie

Source: Gale Gand's show from many years ago.


  • 2 sweet potatoes (or 3, if the potatoes are kind of small)
  • 1 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 stick of butter, softened
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp cloves
  • 1/4 tsp ginger
  • pie crust


  1. Wash sweet potatoes. Pierce sweet potatoes with a fork. Wrap individually in foil. Bake at 425 degrees F for about 1 hour. I squeeze them, using a pot holder. If they are very soft, they are ready!
  2. Unwrap potatoes, being careful to not burn yourself. Cut potatoes crosswise, every inch or so. You don't want the pie to be too stringy. Peel the skins from the potatoes and put in a bowl.
  3. Reduce oven heat to 375 degrees F.

  5. Mash potatoes with a potato masher. Add remaining ingredients (Minus the crust!). Mash or stir til mixed.
  6. Pour into a 9 inch pie shell. If your potatoes are on the large side, you may have extra filling. You could bake the rest in an oven-safe glass bowl. Place pie on a cooking sheet, just in case it spills over while baking.
  7. Bake til pie is set, about 50 minutes.
  8. Once cool, serve by itself or with some ice cream on top.

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.

Makes 6-8 servings.

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.

I just use Libby's famous pumpkin pie recipe (on back of the can), but substitute sweet potatoes for the pumpkin. (12/08/2006)
