142 - Sweet Potato Pie

(by Shirley McNevich)

4 large yams
3 eggs
1/3 cup white sugar
1 tsp. lemon juice
3/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. allspice
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/4 tsp. salt
1 1/2 cups light cream
4 TBSP melted butter
1 unbaked 9" pie shell (if you want to make the pie shell from scratch, check out our recipe #33)

Bake the yams at 400 degrees on a cookie sheet or in a cake pan until tender (test with a fork). Remove from oven, peel them, and mash them with a potato masher. Beat 3 eggs and add to the mashed yams. Add the sugar, lemon juice, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, and salt. Stir everything with a spoon until well mixed. Add the light cream and stir. Add the melted butter and stir with a spoon. Spray the pie dish with Pam, insert the unbaked pie crust, then spray the inside of the pie crust with Pam also. Scoop mixture into the unbaked pie shell and bake 400 degrees for 50 minutes.
