A very simple holiday sweet potato pie

This is an extremely simple and extremely good pie recipe. You can even cheat and use store-bought pie crusts, in which case the whole thing takes about 5 minutes to put together.


(Serves 3-8)


  1. Boil potatoes until tender (20-30 minutes). Drain and peel.
  2. In a blender, put the potatoes, sugar and butter. Mix up a little, then add eggs, vanilla and nutmeg.
  3. Blend ingredients together well, until mixture is very smooth.
  4. Pour into unbaked pie shell and bake at for 45-55 minutes until filling is set.


If you don't want to make your own pie shell, I find that the Pet Ritz factory pie shells work well.


Difficulty: easy.
Time: 30 minutes preparation, 1 hour baking.
Precision: approximate measurement OK.
