Old-Fashioned Sweet Potato Pie - Instructions
Preheat oven to 425 F. Line a 9-inch pie plate with 1 layer of pastry; set aside.
Combine 1 cup of water and the salt in a large saucepan. Add sweet potatoes; cover and
bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat and simmer until sweet potatoes are just
barely tender when pierced, about 5 minutes. Drain slices, rinse with cold water until
cool to touch. Drain slices well; transfer them to a large mixing bowl.
To sweet potatoes, add sugars, lemon juice, flour and pumpkin pie spice. Toss gently
with a spatula until slices are evenly coated. Spoon sweet potatoes into pastry-lined
pie plate; dot top of potatoes with butter. Place top pastry over filling and crimp
top and bottom pastries together to make decorative edge. Cut 3 to 4 slits in the top
to allow steam to escape.
