Sweet Potato Pie

Simply perfect, and very very easy. Happy Thanksgiving to all! 

1 (1 pound) sweet potato
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup milk
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 (9 inch) unbaked pie crust

Boil the sweet potato whole in its skin until done. This could range from between 40 and 90 minutes, depending on the “fatness” of the potato and your altitude. Run cold water over the sweet potato, and slip off the skin. Break it apart and place it in a mixing bowl. Add softened butter, cut into pieces, and mix well with mixer. Stir in sugar, milk, eggs, nutmeg, cinnamon and vanilla. Beat well on medium speed until mixture is smooth. Pour filling into an unbaked pie crust.

Bake at 350 degrees F for 55 to 65 minutes, or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Let cool (although it’s lovely warm also!) and serve with whipped cream.
