Today is/would have been Michael Jackson’s 53rd birthday. Only four days older than… me!
With that said, I have good news! The good news is that I finally (FINALLY) got my Mac fixed, which is why I haven’t been blogging. Bad me. Sticking my toes back into the blogosphere after a LONG absence. I’m listing MJ’s sweet potato pie recipe… without having tested it. If I choose to make it at a later date, I’ll update this post.
1/2 cup white sugar
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup Milk (about)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 1/2 cups Sweet potatoes (fresh or canned; heaping cups)
2 tablespoons Fresh lemon or orange juice
1 Pie shell (9-inch); unbaked
1/2 cup Pecan halves, optional
Beat eggs and sugar. Add melted butter, salt, milk, vanilla, and spice. Blend egg mixture with mashed sweet potatoes and lemon or orange juice.
Pour into unbaked pie shell or greased 1 1/2 quart baking dish. Garnish with pecan halves if desired.
Bake in preheated 400-degree oven 10 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 375 degrees; bake 40 minutes longer or until golden.
