Ingredients:  
6 large sweet potatoes

Directions:
Wash potatoes, put in pot, cover with water, bring to boil, cut down to medium heat and cook until done, about 1 hour. Stick a fork in the middle of potato and it slides off fork easily, it's done. Pour boiling water off potatoes and run cold water on them until water in pot stops getting warm. Set aside until you can pick potatoes up with your hands. (Don’t wait too long. Potatoes need to be warm to melt the sugar and butter). Use knife to remove peelings. Peelings will slide off, no need to cut peelings. Place potatoes in a large bowl; mashed potatoes with butter, then mix in sugar, cinnamon, cream, flavoring and milk. Taste to see if suits your taste buds. If taste and consistency suits you, add beaten eggs, stir in well and pour into three pie shells. Note: Potato mixture should not be too thick or too runny, if needed add more can milk to get the right consistency. Potato mixture should slide off spoon easily. Bake- 350 degrees for about 1 hour.
