Okay, here recipe I have kept to myself for 25 years that was given to me by my mother Ms.Sanders, with a modern twist. I am happy to share one of my favorite recipes, just one of many versions of Mississippi Classic.
2/3 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar(you can add more if you like for your taste …but do it before adding eggs lol)
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 can sweeten condensed milk
2 1/2 cups mashed sweet potatoes
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 teaspoon Lemon extract
2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/3 cup of flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 unbaked deep-dish pastry shell (9 inches)
In a bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add eggs mix well. Add milk, sweet potatoes, vanilla, and cinnamon, nutmeg, flour, and salt mix well.
Sprinkle cinnamon in pie shell and pour into pie shell.
Bake at 425° for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350° bake 35-40 minutes longer or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean.
Cool. Brush Bacardi Limon on the pie for special taste Store in refrigerator. Yield: 6-8 servings.
Leave Bacardi off if just want Old Fashioned traditional pie.
