The Best Sweet Potato Pie EVER!

Note...This is not a picture of the pie I made. I didn't have one, so I downloaded this one :)

Hey Friends,
I thought since it was Thanksgiving time, I would share a favorite sweet potato pie recipe that you may want to make yourself! It's so easy and so good!

We will start with the oh so good and simple flakey crust:

1/2 cup cooking oil
1 tsp of salt
1 1/3 cups of flour
3 tbls of milk
All you do is mix the first 3 ingredients together, then when totally blended quickly mix in the milk with a fork. Use your hand to pat the crust in the bottom of your pie plate. Pierce with a fork all over to prevent bubbling.

Next...the pie filling :)
3 sweet potatoes boiled and peeled.
3/4 cups of sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tbls of flour
2 eggs
1/2 cup evaporated milk
1 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp allspice
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
Mix all together with an electric mixer. ( I don't mash my potatoes too much....I like to leave them a little lumpy) pour into your pie crust and bake at 350 degrees until pie is set and crust is brown....I usually have to cover my crust half way through baking so it doesn't burn...It takes about 45 min to cook.

I like to serve with fresh cinnamon whip cream....I can't tell you the measurements, but I use heavy whipping cream, sugar to taste, cinnamon to taste, and tbls vanilla flavoring, and whip until peaks form.
Try it out and let me know what you think. I guarantee you will impress someone with this pie!
Have a happy thanksgiving everyone!
