Sweet Potato Pie
Thanksgiving is all about the sides and the dessert. I've never met anyone who says that their favorite part about the big dinner is the turkey. I'm sure those people exist, I just don't associate with them.
Just go through your list...twice. Don't forget the sweet potatoes. Don't forget the whipping cream. Do that and you'll be golden.
SWEET POTATO PIE
1 lb. sweet potato, cooked and mashed
1/2 c. butter, softened
1 c. sugar
1/2 c. milk
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. vanilla
1 unbaked pie crust
whipped cream (follow step 5 in the directions)
nutmeg and/or cinnamon
1. Beat together all ingredients (except pie crust) until smooth.
2. Pour into prepared pie crust. Bake at 350˚ for 55-60 minutes. The pie will come out of the oven puffy and as it cools, it will fall back down.
3. Serve with whipped cream and a sprinkle of nutmeg and/or cinnamon.
