Anya loves sweet potato pie so I promised I would make one for her. Although I have never made a pie! I KNOW! I’m more of a cake and cookie type of gal, I’ve never been a big pie eating girl. But, I thought I’d try my hand at making a pie so here is the recipe and the outcome! It is delicious!
1 (9in unbaked pie crust)
2 Cups of sweet potatoes
2 Tablespoons of butter softened
2 Eggs beaten
1 Cup of white sugar
1 Tablespoon of All Purpose Flour
1/2 Teaspoon of Salt
1/2 Cup of Buttermilk
1/4 Teaspoon of Baking Soda
1 Teaspoon of Vanilla
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
- Mix together mashed sweet potatoes, butter or margarine, and eggs. In a separate bowl, mix together sugar, flour, and salt. Mix in spices if desired. Add to sweet potato mixture and stir well.
- Mix together buttermilk and baking soda. Add to sweet potato mixture and stir well. Mix in vanilla extract. Pour filling into pastry shell.

Let it cool and serve!
