2 cups sweet potatoes, drained
4 tablespoons margarine, melted
3 eggs
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon grated nutmeg
¾ cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 9-inch pie shell, baked (Be sure to take out of foil pan, if one's used, for microwave cooking)
¼ cup chopped pecans

 

Use a food processor or fork to mash sweet potatoes together with melted margarine. Blend in eggs, sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Add milk and vanilla. Pour mixture into baked pie shell.

Microwave on medium high for seven minutes. Sprinkle pecans over surface of pie.

Rotating midway through cooking, microwave on medium high six to eight minutes or until center no longer jiggles. If you prefer, you can bake it in the oven at 375 degrees for about 35 to 45 minutes or until it doesn't jiggle.
