2 cups cooked, mashed sweet potatoes
1 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 eggs, separated
1/4 cup evaporated milk
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 unbaked 10-inch pastry shell
whipped topping (optional)


Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

Combine sweet potatoes, brown sugar, butter, egg yolk, salt and spices in a large bowl. Beat until light and fluffy. Add evaporated milk. Mix just enough to combine.

Beat egg whites in a separate bowl until foamy. Gradually add sugar, beating until stiff. Fold into large bowl. Bake for 10 minutes.

Reduce heat to 350 degrees F. and bake an additional 45 to 50 minutes or until set. Cool. Top with whipped topping, if desired.
