Serves: 8? 2? 6?
Calories Per Serving: NA
Preparation Time: 1.5 hours
Difficulty: Easy

3 lg sweet potatoes, boiled, peeled, sliced
2 sticks butter
1 cup sugar
4 eggs, beaten
2/3 cup buttermilk
2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp lemon juice
1/8 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1/8 tsp ground cloves
1/8 tsp ginger
2 tsp spiced rum
2 9 inch single pie crusts.

Cooking Instructions:
Preheat oven to 300.
* In a large bowl, mash potatoes while still hot.
* Add butter and mix well.
* Stir in sugar and eggs.
* Add buttermilk, vanilla and spices. Combine well.
* Pour into crusts, bake for about 1 hour.

Note, protect the edge of the crust with foil for first 30 minutes or so. You want to slow bake, because too fast and the filling will crack. Use the toothpick test to check doneness.

Serving Suggestions: Top with home-whipped cream made with dark rum and sugar whipped in.
