Sweet Potato Pie

Fall is a wonderful season full of wonderful taste, colors and fun. Here in southern Illinois the trees will change colors and the beauty they will bestow will be something that will draw lookers from many areas. The fun will include football, bonfires, and playing in the leaves. The taste of fall oh my is maybe the best with pumpkins, sweet potatoes, and all the great baking that will go on. Here is a delicious recipe that I found on the blog A year of Menonite Cooking

Sweet Potato Pudding

2 1/2 cups mashed sweet potatoes

2 eggs

1 cup half and half

6 T sugar

1 tsp salt

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp ginger

2 T butter

Marshmallows or chopped pecans

Cook sweet potatoes with skins on until soft. Peel and mash. When well mashed, add sugar, salt, cinnamon, ginger, melted butter and half and half. Beat eggs well and add to mixture. Top with chopped pecans or marshmallows.

Bake at 350 for 45 minutes.

This recipe is adapted from the Mennonite Community Cookbook (1950).
