    I want to bake a Sweet Potato pie for Thanksgiving, but I don't have a family recipe (too far north of the Mason-Dixon line).

    If any of you Southern Gentlemen/Ladies would care to share a recipe with a Yankee, I'd surely appreciate it.

    Thanks y'all

    Here is one that is fit for Trapshooters!



    1 cup pecans

    1/2 cup bourbon whiskey

    1 1/2 lbs sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch thick pieces

    1/2 cup water

    2 eggs

    3/4 cup packed light brown sugar

    2 tablespoons light corn syrup

    1/3 teaspoon salt

    1/3 teaspoon ground cinnamon

    1/8 teaspoon ground ginger

    1/3 cup whipping cream

    1 cup whipping cream, whipped

    1 Pillsbury® Pet-Ritz® frozen deep dish pie crust (from 12-oz package)


    1. In small bowl, mix pecans and bourbon. Cover and refrigerate 8 hours or overnight.

    2. Heat oven to 375°F. In 13x9-inch ungreased baking dish, place sweet potatoes and water; cover with foil. Bake about 45 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Drain water; cool sweet potatoes 10 minutes.

    3. Drain pecans, reserving bourbon. In large bowl, mash sweet potatoes; add eggs, brown sugar, corn syrup, salt, cinnamon, ginger and reserved bourbon. Mix well. Gradually stir in 1/3 cup whipping cream, scraping bowl after each addition. Mix 1 minute longer. (Sweet potatoes have a coarse texture, so there will be some small lumps.)

    4. Pour filling into frozen pie crust; sprinkle with pecans. Bake about 45 minutes or until filling puffs and is lightly browned and knife inserted in center comes out clean.

    5. Cool completely, about 3 hours. Serve with whipped cream. Cover and refrigerate any remaining pie.

    Try www.allrecipes.com Nice thing about that site is there are usually plenty of reviews from user. It's pretty easy to tell what most people like, and don't like, reading the reviews.

    If you want to cook something good with sweet potatoes for Thanksgiving, try my recipe for cranberry sweet potatoe casserole. The only tricky part about is sweet potatoes vary alot in how long it takes to cook them so the cook times are approximate.

    3/4c brown sugar
    3/4c flour
    3/4c rolled oats
    1T cinnamon
    1/2 stick butter softened
    2c fresh cranberries
    2-4 sliced sweet potatoes
    1-2 sliced granny smith apples (slice em thin)
    3/4 c apple or orange juice

    Microwave sweet potatoes in juice until they bend easily.
    Mix brown sugar, flour, oats, cinnamon and butter. Reserve 1c of the oat mixture and mix the remainder with the sweet potatoes and juice, cranberries and apples. Put in casserole dish and sprinkle remaining oat mixture on top. Bake, covered in a 350 oven until you can "fork" through the mixture without resistence. The cooking time can take anywhere from 45 min to 1 1/2 hours.
