Happy All Hallows, friends & fiends!


We have a new membership program! Over the 2 years of running our Maecenas patron program, a pattern emerged — different folks want different perqs! If you'd like to keep the patron pledge you already have to use specifically for advance event reservations, feel free. For all else (or if you'd like a more curated experience), consider switching over to an Omni Membership, each with a different focus

Sweet Potato Pie
Prep Time: 15 mins Cook Time: 1 hrs 40 mins Total Time: 1 hrs 55 mins

Ingredients
  • 1 (1 pound) sweet potato, with skin 1⁄2 cup butter, soened
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1⁄2 cup milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon ground nutmeg 1⁄2 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 (9 inch) unbaked pie crust

Directions
Step 1
  • Place whole sweet potato in pot and cover with water; bring to a boil. Boil until tender when pierced with a fork, 40 to 50 minutes.
Step 2
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Step 3
  • Remove sweet potato from the pot and run under cold water. Remove and discard skin.
Step 4
  • Break sweet potato flesh apart and place in a bowl. Add butter and mix with an electric mixer until well combined. Add sugar, milk, eggs, nutmeg, cinnamon, and vanilla; beat on medium speed until mixture is smooth. Pour filling into unbaked pie crust.
Step 5
  • Bake in the preheated oven until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean, 55 to 60 minutes.
Step 6
  • Remove from the oven and let cool before serving.

Tips
Pie will be puffed up like a soufflé when you remove it from the oven, but will deflate as it cools.
