Peel and slice potatoes. Put in pot, cover with water and cook until tender

Drain off water, add butter, beat.

Personal Notes:
I love this recipe. Not only because Zack and I LOVE her sweet potato pie, but because I remember sitting with her when she gave me this recipe and she wrote it down exactly as she said it to me-that is how I included it here. Can't you just hear her talking to you?
