1 1/2 cups hot mashed sweet potatoes
1 tablespoon butter
1 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup buttermilk (whole fat)
1 Unbaked Single Pie Pastry
Peel and slice sweet potatoes. Boil until fork tender, drain in colander. Add the potatoes back into the pot and add butter. Blend with a mixer until mashed. Remove any strings on the beaters. In a large mixing bowl, combine the spices with the sugar and baking powder. Add the baking soda to the buttermilk and stir well. In a small bowl, beat eggs until frothy. Add the eggs, buttermilk mixture and sweet potatoes to the sugar spice mixture. Blend with a mixer until smooth and creamy.
Pour into a uncooked pie crust and place in a 400-degree preheated oven for 10 minutes. Reduce the heat to 300 degrees and bake for about 45 minutes longer. Serve with sweetened cream if desired.
