This is one of my favorite pies, much like pumpkin, just a little different.  And our sweet potatoes make the best pie.  So if any of you have some extra you haven’t quite figured out what to do with - thinking of you all Tilles Family, make some pie.  Use your favorite pie/pastry dough, or go crust free and bake it without.

1 1/2 pounds Sweet Potato

1/2 cup Butter, softened

1/4 cup White sugar

1/4 cup Brown sugar

2 Tablespoons Molases

1/2 cup Buttermilk

3 Eggs

½ tsp Salt

2 teaspoon ground Nutmeg

2 teaspoon ground Cinnamon

2 teaspoon Vanilla extract

Bake sweet potato whole in skin until done.  Remove the skin. Break apart sweet potato in a bowl. Add butter, and mix well with mixer. Stir in sugar, milk, eggs, nutmeg, cinnamon and vanilla. Beat on medium speed until mixture is smooth. Pour filling into an unbaked pie crust or simply bake in a baking dish.  Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 55 to 60 minutes, or until knife inserted in center comes out clean.
