A close cousin of pumpkin, sweet potato pie is homey, rich, and satisfying in a way that always makes us feel comforted. To make the filling, you combine a little flour, ground cinnamon, allspice, and cloves with baking powder, then—in a stand mixer—mash your already-baked and peeled sweet potatoes. Add eggs, sugar, sweetened condensed milk, butter, vanilla, and the flour mixture, then pour this filling into a prepared pie crust and bake. Make this pie the day before you plan to serve it, so the filling has a chance to cool and solidify. Serve with Easy Whipped Cream.
