Sweet Potato Pie

(Makes enough filling for 1 (9") pie)

1 large sweet potato, about 2 cups cooked
2 eggs
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup white sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup milk
1 unbaked pastry shell

Preheat oven to 350.

Boil sweet potato in skin for 40 - 50 minutes until done. Run cold water over sweet potato and remove skin. Break apart potato in a medium bowl. Add butter and mix with electric mixer. Add sugar, milk, eggs, nutmeg, cinnamon and vanilla. Beat until blended well, about 1 minute.

Pour filling into unbaked pie shell. Bake at 350 for 55 - 60 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Pie will puff up like a souffle and then will sink down some as it cools.

Cool completely. Serve with fresh whipped cream.
