Sweet Potato Pie

If you have met me, then you know my love for the sweet potato. One of my favorite foods on the planet. I realize this recipe is coming a little late in the year. At the local produce market they have a $ 0.75 basket of veggies and fruits that are not quite as pretty anymore. You just grab a big bag and never know what you might get, you may get a huge bag or radishes, a bundle of arugula, onions and three sweet potato.

I did not want to waste these beautiful and grand potato products. So this is what came about!

Sweet Potato Pie

1 (1 pound) sweet potato (approx 4)
1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup agave nectar
1/2 cup plain yogurt w/ 1/4 tsp. of baking powder
2 eggs

1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1(9 inch) unbaked pie crust

1. Bake sweet potato whole with skin on for about 1 hour, or until done. Remove skin.

2. Smash sweet potato in a bowl. Add butter, and mix well with mixer. Stir in agave nectar, yogurt, eggs, nutmeg, cinnamon, and vanilla. Beat on low speed until smooth. Pour filling into pie crust.

3. Bake at 350 degrees F for about 55-60 minutes, or until knife inserted into center comes out cleans. Pie will puff uplike a souffle, and then will sink down as it cools.

Let cool and Enjoy!!
