Maryland White Potatoe Pie

Need to use up those few potatoes? Here is a great recipe to put those potatoes to good use. I have a whole basket full of potatoes in my pantry that I need to go through, since I haven't been able to cook as much as I normally do. So this recipe has come in handy. I would make sure you have a deep pie dish to keep it from spilling over.

2 medium potatoes, cooked, peeled and mashed
2/3 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup whipping cream
1/2 cup milk
2 teaspoons lemons, rind of
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
4 eggs, beaten

First combine the mashed potatoes, butter, sugar, baking powder and salt in medium mixing bowl; mix well. Then gradually add whipping cream and milk, stirring until well blended. Stir in lemon rind, juice, vanilla and nutmeg. Add eggs; mix well. Pour mixture into pie crust. Bake at 350'F for 55 minutes or until knife comes out of center clean. Cool.
Yields one 9-inch pie.
