Excerpt from "Share a Slice of Love" by Kim Nelson
This recipe is from my mother Miss Geraldine. She loves to use red jewel sweet potatoes in this pie. She buys them at a roadside stand on her way home from Myrtle Beach, Sc. The local farmer grows them in the field behind his produce shed.
4 small sweet potatoes, baked and cooled 1⁄2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
one 9-inch pie crust, baked
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Peel the potatoes. Put them in the bowl of an electric stand mixer fitted with whisk. add the melted butter and sugar. Mix until smooth. add the vanilla extract. Mix well. Pour the potato mixture into a baked pie crust and bake for 35 minutes. Brush the top with butter when the pie comes out of the oven.
