Sweet Potato Pie

With Thanksgiving coming up thought I would share with you my Mom's Sweet Potato Pie. I will enclose her homemade pie crust recipe also. But if you want to bypass homemade you can also use a frozen pie crust.

Busha's Pie Crust

8 or 9 inch crust

1 cup four
1/2 tsp. salt
1/3 cup lard
2 tbsp. water Mix flour and salt in a bowl. Cut in lard with pastry blender until
small pea size particles are obtained. Sprinkle with water a little at a time. Mix with fork until flour is moist.

Roll out with rolling pin. Try not to use too much flour because it makes the crust tough.

Sweet Potato Pie

2 cups mashed sweet potatoes
4 oz. cream cheese
1 cup sugar
1/4 c. half and half
4 tbsp. butter melted
2 large eggs. lightly beaten
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 9-inch Deep Dish pie crust

Preheat oven to 350
In a large bowl, with mixer on medium speed, beat sweet potatoes and cream cheese
until smooth. Add sugar and half and half; beat 5 minutes or until sugar dissolves, scraping sides of bowl with rubber spatula. Add butter, eggs, vanilla, cinnamon, and beat until blended. Pour mixture into pie shell.

Bake 1 hour or until filling is puffed and set around edge but center is slightly jiggly. Cool completely on a wire rack.
