Easy Sweet Potato Pie

You can almost smell this Sweet Potato Pie recipe baking in the oven...before you've even started! This is holiday tradition at its best!

What You'll Need:
  • 2 (29-ounce) cans sweet potatoes or yams, drained
  • 1 (12-ounce) can evaporated milk
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup biscuit baking mix
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9-inch deep-dish pie plate with cooking spray.
  2. In a blender, combine sweet potatoes and evaporated milk; blend until smooth. Pour into a large bowl and set aside.
  3. Add remaining ingredients to blender and blend until well combined, scraping down sides as needed. Add to sweet potato mixture; mix well then pour into prepared pie plate, mounding mixture in center.
  4. Bake 50 to 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Allow to cool completely on a wire rack before serving.

It doesn't take much to make this pie look festive...simply top each slice with a dollop of whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon.

Please tell me how much to use in fresh yams! Do I mash first or measure first? How many cups? Thanks waiting for reply to make. Sounds so good.

When using fresh yams, you'll need about 4 lbs measured before mashing.

If I wanted to make this pie using a pie crust, would I have to make any changes ?

Hi, Martin! No changes needed; just make sure not to prebake your crust!

is this a crustless pie?

If you want to use fresh yams, how many and what changes would have to be made to recipe?


It would be apx 3 large sweet potatoes: If you have a 29 ounce can of sweet potatoes simply mash them and measure in a cup. That will be a guide for the next time you need to substitute. I have done that in the past.
