Algie Petrere's Top Gun Bourbon and Sweet Potato Pie

Prep Time: 1 Hour
Yields: 8-10 Servings


Comment: Algie Petrere is another winner in our 2003 Stirrin' It Up for the Holidays recipe contest. The bourbon gives this wonderful sweet potato pie a piquant kick. If you want to cut back on the liquor, Algie recommends that you substitute half of the bourbon with another liquid such as juice from canning figs or pears.

2 cups mashed sweet potatoes
½ cup bourbon
3 eggs
4 tbsp softened margarine
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 (9-inch) uncooked pie shell

Preheat oven to 325° F. Combine all ingredients. Using a wire whisk, mix ingredients thoroughly. Pour mixture into the pie shell. Bake for 45 minutes, or until crust is golden brown and center is just set.
