Roasted Sweet Potatoes
- Preheat the oven to 400°F
- Place the sweet potatoes onto a cookie sheet lined with aluminum foil.
- Bake for one hour or until tender. Once done, peel the skins off the potatoes and add the pulp into a medium bowl.
- Line one cookie sheet with aluminum foil. This helps in case there's any spillage.
- Place frozen pie pan onto cookie sheet. Using a fork, poke the bottom of the pie crust 4-5 times. Bake for 10 minutes and remove from the oven. Lightly sprinkle the bottom of the pie crust with cinnamon.
- Reduce the temperature of the oven to 350°F.
- Using an electric mixer, on SLOW setting, beat the sweet potatoes until creamy. Next add the butter, sugars, egg, condensed milk, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt until well mixed.
- Pour the filling into the pie pan. Lightly sprinkle cinnamon on top.
- Bake the sweet potato pie for 1 hour.
- On a cooling rack, let sit for 1-2 hours to allow for easy and even slicing. You can also place in the refrigerator.
- When ready to eat, heat in the microwave for 30 seconds to 1 minute and serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and a dash of cinnamon.
- If there's any pie left, store in a refrigerator.
- You can "roast" the sweet potatoes in an air fryer at 400 degrees F for 45 minutes.
- Be sure to poke holes in the potatoes at least 4 times on each side of the potato.
- Turn over the potatoes midway during cooking.
