Southern Sweet Potato Pie

  • Yield 10 servings

A perfect fall holiday pie.


This very sweet pie is a tasty dessert for all occasions. I like to bake special pies and cakes for my family during the holidays


1 cup mashed sweet potatoes
2 eggs, beaten
1 2/3 cups sugar
3/4 cup evaporated milk
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup light corn syrup
3 tablespoons flour
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
pinch of salt
1 9-inch unbaked pie shell


  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Mix together all ingredients in a large bowl until smooth.
  3. Pour into pie shell and bake for 55 to 60 minutes.

Tips From Our Test Kitchen: For a more dense pie, use 1 1/2 cups mashed sweet potatoes rather than just 1 cup. Serve with a dollop of whipped cream and a dash of ground nutmeg or crystallized ginger.
