Based on a recipe from Southern LIving’s Our Best Recipes:
- 2 cps cooked and mashed sweet potatoes (canned sweet potatoes work just fine)
- 1/4 cp butter
- 3 eggs
- 1 1/4 cp sugar (may substitute brown sugar for all or some)
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 cp bourbon (Virginia Gentleman recommended)
- 2 pie shells (the recipe says it makes one pie; don’t believe it)
Combine ingredients. Mix until smooth.
Pour into pie shell(s).
Preheat oven to 425 Fahrenheits.
Cook at 425 Fahrenheits for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 Fahrenheits and cook for an additional hour and 20 minutes or until knife inserted in center of pie comes out clean.
Drink remainder of bourbon.
