About this recipe

“no fuss” it is. It is simple and to the point, making your life just a little bit easier during the Holidays.


  • 2 1/2 cups mashed sweet potatoes (from about 2 lb. raw sweet potatoes)
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 3 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tbsp. flour
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. ginger
  • 1/8 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp. cloves
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 unbaked single pie crust, chilled
  • Lightly sweetened whipped cream or eggnog, optional, for serving.


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. In a large bowl, combine sweet potatoes, cream, vanilla, and eggs and whisk to blend.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the sugar, flour, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, cloves, and salt. Add the sugar mixture to the sweet potato mixture and stir until smooth and well blended.
  4. Pour the mixture in the chilled pie crust and bake for 50 to 55 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center of the pie comes out clean.
  5. Transfer the pie to a wire rack and cool completely. Serve slices with dollop of whipped cream or in a pool of eggnog.
