And it only took me making 4 pies to get there...
Well, someone's got to do it.

Emily's Spiced Sweet Potato Custard Pie
2 cups worth of sweet potato
1/2 cup sugar
3 eggs (or 2 complete eggs and 2 egg whites)
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons Brandy
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon of about equal parts ground nutmeg, cardamon, allspice, and turmeric (you could also use ground cloves, and/or omit the allspice)
1 graham cracker crust (I used pre-made)

1. Peel and cut up the raw sweet potato. Steam for 12-14 minutes. Let cool, at least for a few minutes.
2. Mash the sweet potato until smooth and then mix with the other ingredients until smooth. I used an immersion blender, mixing the sweet potato, sugar, egg and spices first, and then mixing in the liquid.
3. Pour mixture into the pie crust. Bake for 10 minutes at 400 degrees, then lower to 350 for 50 minutes or until a fork emerges clean.

Merry Christmas to those of you who celebrate Christmas.
