Source: Real Simple
2 Tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/3 cup light brown sugar
1 large egg
1 Tablespoon fresh orange juice
1 Tablespoon honey
1 large/ 1lb sweet potato, cooked and mashed
1/2 12-ounce can evaporated milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
9-inch refrigerated pie crust
- Heat oven to 350° F.
- Bring a pot of water to boil. Peel and cut the sweet potato then place in boiling water until fork tender, about 20 minutes.
- In a large bowl, with an electric mixer on medium, beat the butter and sugar for 3 minutes. Add the egg, orange juice, and honey and beat for 2 minutes. Add the sweet potato, evaporated milk, vanilla, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg and combine.
- Pour the sweet potato mixture into the crust. Bake until the filling is set, 50 to 60 minutes. If crust starts to get too well done cover edges with foil. Let cool for at least 30 minutes. Serve at room temperature, with whipped cream or ice cream.
