sweet potato pie!

Today's cold & rainy weather put me in a baking mood!
so I made a sweet potato pie! 

Here's the recipe in case you'd like to try it.

1 lb sweet potato
1/2 c softened butter
1/2 c milk
2 eggs
3/4 c sugar ( I mixed half white & half brown)
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla extract
9" pie crust

Boil the sweet potato until done.  Run under cold water and remove skin.
Break open in a bowl and add the butter. Mix thoroughly with a mixer.
Add all the other ingredients and mix thoroughly again.
Pour filling into the pie crust and bake at 350 for 55-60 minutes.

Enjoy with whipped cream!

p.s. "Sweet Potato Pie!" is one of mine and Greg's favorite expressions!
As in, "Sweet potato pie it rained today!!!"
