Sweet Potato Pie

Our transaction coordinator brought a sweet potato pie in the office. It was my first time to try it and it was not bad. They liked it much except me who hated cinnamon. I don't know why but when I taste cinnamon, it will make me want to vomit. I have liked it before (in cinnamon bread) but now, it feels like I am allergic to it. I don't even like the smell of it. For those who love cinnamon, try this sweet potato pie recipe. You will like it for sure. The recipe is taken from 250 Superb pies and pastries book.

1/2 recipe Plain Pastry
1 1/2 cups mashed sweet potatoes
2 tbsp butter, melted
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp salt
2 eggs, beaten
1 3/4 cups milk

Line piepan with pastry. Combine remaining ingredients in order listed and pour into pastry shell. Bake in very hot oven (450 degrees F) 10 minutes; reduce temperature to moderate (350 F) and bake about 45 minutes longer or until firm. Makes 1 (9-inch) pie.
