Sweet Potato Pie

This isn't quite the recipe that I made growing up, but it's pretty darn close. And I get to use less sugar than the original. 

Sweet Potato Pie
Ingredients 1lb sweet potatoes (orange flesh not yellow, might be labeled yams) 1/2 cup butter softened 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed 1/2 cup milk 2 eggs 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg (or to taste) 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon (or to taste) 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1 (9in) unbaked pie crust Directions Peel sweet potatoes, cut into large chunks and boil for 30 minutes or until soft. 
Preheat oven to 350F. 
Drain sweet potatoes, then break apart. Add butter and mix well. Stir in sugar, milk, eggs, spices, and vanilla. Beat until smooth. 
Notice the orange hue. If it's yellow, you got the wrong kind of sweet potato.
Pour filling into pie crust. 

Bake for 55-60 minutes, or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Let cool before serving. Whip cream is optional.
