  • 1 pound sweet potato
  • 1/2 cup butter softened
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup evaporated milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 unbaked pie crust 9-inch


  • Boil sweet potatoes whole in skin for 40 to 50 minutes or until cooked through and soft. Run cold water over the sweet potatoes and remove the skin.
  • Add the potatoes and butter to the bowl of your stand mixer fitted with the whisk and mix on low until potatoes are mashed.
  • Beat in the sugar, milk, eggs, flour, nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger, and vanilla on medium speed until mixture is smooth.
  • Pour filling into the prepared pie crust.
  • Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 55 to 60 minutes, or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Pie will puff up like a souffle and then will sink down as it cools.
