Pink Tea Cup: Sweet Potato Pie Recipe

Liz Smith featured this recipe in the New York Social Diary:

2 lbs. yams
½ cup of butter
1 teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon ginger
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon nutmeg
2 tablespoons white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
3 large eggs, separated
½ cup orange juice
1 tablespoon grated orange rind
½ cup of evaporated milk

Peel and boil yams until mashable. Add butter, spices, salt, sugar to hot yams. Beat until light and smooth.
Beat egg yolks until light and add to mixture.
Stir in orange juice, orange rind and milk. Beat egg whites until stiff and fold in.
Pour mixture into unbaked pie shell. Preheat oven to 350 and bake 35 minutes or until the pie puffs up and is firm in the middle. Cool on a rack.

Add whipped cream. Dig in Pilgrims!
Sounds good, doesn't it? Yum.

I have to say.......I cooked for years for my family.....and then I stopped.

18 years ago when we moved to Santa Barbara......I LOVE going out to dinner every night with my darling husband.....and he likes it too!

But, I am going to make those sweet potato things...because you and Liz Smith are two of my favorite humans....and so I will!

I follow her on NYSD (my first foray onto the internet)! Scary at first.....then I met David for lunch in NYC (I am from California); we clicked....and are good friends!

I adore him.....I adore NYSD; and happily ever after!

then I found YOU!! LOVE!!

the blogosphere is a great story! I think ......(you tell me....) that NYSD was one of the very first "blogs"????

I adore yours.!!!
