4 cups cooked, mashed sweet potatoes (they can be boiled or baked before mashing)

1 cup lowfat milk

3 lightly beaten eggs

1/3 cup honey

2 teaspoons total of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and/or apple pie spice or mix to your taste

1/4 cup rum or brandy (optional)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Mix all ingredients until smooth. If you like it really smooth, you can use a mixer or food processor, but I usually use a whisk or wooden spoon.

Pour into a prepared deep dish pie shell (my favorite frozen crust is Marie Callender’s) and smooth the top.

Bake for 10 minutes and then lower oven temperature to 350 degrees and bake an additional 20-30 minutes. The pie is done when the center doesn’t jiggle. Let cool before cutting. Serves 6-8. Good for breakfast too!
