Sweet potatoes and yams are often confused with one another. For this recipe, be sure to purchase the dark-skinned, orange-fleshed potatoes, usually labeled as "yams" in the supermarket. These antioxidant-rich potatoes are not only good for you, but are also very tasty, and they make a colorful pie that everyone loves.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Place the frozen pie crust on the counter to thaw.
  2. Put the potatoes in medium saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Cook the potatoes for 20 minutes, or until very tender when tested with a fork. Drain well.
  3. Transfer the warm potatoes to a large bowl. Add the remaining ingredients. Use an electric hand mixer to beat on medium speed until the mixture is smooth.
  4. Pour the potato mixture into the thawed, unbaked pie crust.
  5. Bake for 60 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. (The pie will puff up as it bakes and then will sink down as it cools.)
  6. Place the pie on a cooling rack. Serve at room temperature.
