My Sweet Potato Pie Recipe

Thanksgiving is Thursday and the thing I love best about Thanksgiving (aside from spending time with family) is all the yummy food.  One of my favorite pies to make is my sweet potato pie. Every year I make this pie and everyone loves it. I tell you they can’t get enough of it.  I wanted to share this recipe with you (my friends) to enjoy for dessert on this special holiday. If you love sweet potato pie as much as my family does (believe me they request it every year)  then this one will definitely become a family favorite in your home as well.  This is a traditional sweet potato recipe with a little twist. This is what you will need:


  • 1/2 cup condensed milk

The recipe calls for uncooked pie crust and I use the Pillsbury pie crust, but you can make your own or buy the frozen ones as well. I like the convenience of these pie crust because less time in the kitchen equals more time spent with family. The directions are easy to follow as well.


Preheat oven to 350 degree F.

Bake sweet potatoes for 1 hour in the oven on a baking sheet. When done, let cool. Scrape the pulp out of the skin, transfer to a large bowl, and mash. Set aside.

In a medium bowl, beat together butter, sugar, and brown sugar until creamy. Add eggs, vanilla, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and salt. Add evaporated and condensed milk and stir mixture into sweet potatoes. Beat together with mixer until smooth and pour into an unbaked pie shell.

Butter, sugar, and brown sugar mixture.

Eggs, spices, evaporated and condensed milk mixed in together.

Sweet potato added to mix and placed in pie crusts. This recipe will make 2 pies.

Bake on bottom rack of oven for 1 hour or until center of pie is firm. Serve warm. Add whipped cream topping if desired and enjoy.

I hope you try making my sweet potato pie recipe this year and that you enjoy it so much it becomes a family staple at every Thanksgiving.  If you do make it please let me know how it came out?  Did you like it or not?  I would love to hear from you!  Well friends thank you for stopping by the blog today and from my home to yours “Happy Thanksgiving”.
