Sweet Potato Meringue Pie

  • 2 cups cooked, mashed sweet potatoes
  • 3 well-beaten egg yolks
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup shredded coconut
  • 1 cup half-and-half or evaporated milk
  • 1 unbaked 9-inch pie shell
  • 3 egg whites
  • 6 tablespoons sugar
Preheat oven to 325°F.

Combine the sweet potatoes and egg yolks. Add the butter, 1/2 cup sugar, salt, nutmeg, vanilla, coconut and milk.

Pour mixture into pie shell, and bake at 325°F until set, about 35 to 40 minutes.

Beat egg whites until soft peaks form. Add remaining sugar, a tablespoon at a time, and beat until stiff peaks form. Spread meringue on hot filling, sealing to edges.

Return pie to oven and bake an additional 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown.
