Sweet Potato Pie recipe

(Columbia) Nov. 25, 2004 - Sweet potato pie is a Southern staple, but you may be surprised at what a guy from Ohio can show you. Take a gander at former WIS News 10 anchor Scott Hawkins' recipe for sweet potato pie.


  • 4 large potatoes
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1 pinch cinnamon
  • 1 pinch nutmeg
  • 1 store-bought pie crust
  • 1/2 cup milk

Cooking instructions:

  • Boil the potatoes until tender. When you stick a fork in them it should go in easy but, you don't
    want them to fall apart.
  • Let the potatoes cool and then peel them.
  • Put the potatoes in a large mixing bowl and mash them thoroughly. Melt the butter and pour it and the other ingredients in the bowl of potatoes. Stir.
  • Pour into a ready-made pie crust.
  • Bake at 325 for 15 minutes
  • Serves 6-8.
