The Perfect Mixer

With the holidays literally near by, all I am thinking about is what I am going to make. Around the holidays I always use a mixer to mix my pies and cakes and BUt when it comes to Eclectrics® Mixer I have to say that the Hamilton Beach® Stand Mixer would be so perfect for me and all the swwets that I have to make. For instance, it is tradition to make Grandma Rose sweet potato pie, its so delicious and it is a hit around here. I want to share the recipe with you and it goes like this:


You can use store bought pie shell if you want do not want to make the dough from scratch
3 tablespoons flour
1 2/3 cup sugar
1 pound of sweet potatoes
3/4 cup evaporated milk
1/2 cup butter at room temperature
1/4 cup light corn syrup
2 eggs
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
Pinch salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, combine the flour and the sugar. Add remaining ingredients and mix well. Pour into pie shell. Bake 55 to 60 minutes or until brown on top and crust is flaky.

Everyone loves this recipe in my household, its great comfort food and a nice treat to a great holiday meal. I know it would be so much better if I had the Hamilton Beach® Mixer because it has more power, 400 watts to be exact, to mix even toughest jobs like 9 dozen cookies
or 4 -1lb. loaves of bread. And some of the most awesome features are the 12 settings of control and the splatter shield, mines does not have this! I think I know what I want for christmas. This mixer is perfect for mommies everywhere.
