Yield 8 servings


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar
  • 3/4 teaspoon yellow food coloring
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon butter or margarine
  • 6 cups cooked, chopped sweet potatoes

How to Make It

  1. Combine sugar, cornstarch, nutmeg, and salt in a saucepan; set aside. Combine milk, vinegar, food coloring, vanilla, and butter; add to sugar mixture, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Add sweet potatoes; cook until thoroughly heated.

  2. Spoon mixture into a lightly greased 10- x 6- x 2-inch baking dish. Roll pastry on a lightly floured surface to fit the top of the baking dish. Place over top of dish, and seal edges.
