The Sweet(est) Potato Pie


So, it all depends on how I'm feeling. Will I make the pie crust from scratch, or just buy one... this year, I just BOUGHT one.

RECIPE:
4-5 large yams/sweet potatoes (I like yams for their color)
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg, plus more for later
1/4 cup milk

Peal, slice and boil yams until fork tender (usually 30-45 minutes).
Mash potatoes and combine all other ingredients.
Cook pie dough according to package instructions.
Add mixture and bake at 375 for 20 minutes.
Sprinkle extra nutmeg on top of (2) pies.
