Sweet Potato Pie


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 stick butter/margarine
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 cups cooked sweet potatoes (mashed)


  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/3 stick butter/margarine
  • 1/2 cup flour


  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
  • Peel the sweet potatoes and slice
  • Place them in a large pan, and cover them with water
  • Cook on stove top until tender
  • Drain and place in large bowl. (I use my electric mixer bowl.)
  • Mash the potatoes, and add the sugar, eggs, milk, butter, and vanilla
  • Put the mixture in a large pyrex bowl, or two smaller ones
  • Mix the topping together and sprinkle on top
  • Bake for 30 minutes


  • I usually divide this between two casserole dishes, and put one in the freezer (unbaked) for another meal. Just follow the baking instructions after thawing.
  • If you want to get a jump on your holiday meal, this can be made and frozen, a week in advance.
