Servings 6 Slices


  • Large Pot
  • pie pan (optional)


  • cups mashed sweet potatoes
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • tbsp butter
  • ½ tsp vanilla
  • ¼ cup milk
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg
  • 1 scant pinch salt
  • 1 9 inch pre-made pie crust- Pillsbury works great!


  • Bake pie crust according to package. Most pie crusts come already in a pie pan but if it doesn't, place in your favorite pie pan!
  • While crust is baking, peel and boil sweet potatoes. (approx 2 large potatoes). Once soft, drain water and then mash sweet potatoes. (pro tip: use a larger pot to boil the potatoes and you can finish making the entire recipe in the same pot! Less dishes=better!)
  • To the mashed sweet potatoes, add in all other ingredients and mix well. Pour mixture into baked pie crust. Bake at 350° for about 30 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool. Top with cool whip before serving and enjoy!!
