Sweet Potato Pie

I'd always heard of sweet potato pie but I'd never tried it before. Awhile back I signed up to host a Glory Foods "Release Your Inner Gloria" House Party. In return for hosting a party, Glory Foods sent me an assortment of their products to try out. Glory Foods specializes in Southern-style heat and serve foods. I received a variety of items like canned green beans and potatoes, black-eyed peas and seasoned cooking bases. I also received a can of Sweet Potato Casserole which came in handy for making this quick and easy Glory's Sweet Potato Pie. It probably took about 5 minutes to throw together. It came out looking beautiful and it tasted delicious. While I'm sure that a made-from-scratch Sweet Potato Pie would be even better, this one was quick and easy and tasted great, so Glory's Sweet Potato Pie is definitely a keeper around here!

2 ea. Eggs, large
1 cup Sweetened condensed milk
1 tsp. Vanilla extract
1 tsp. Cornstarch
1 ea. 9" Pie shell, uncooked and frozen
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Set rack to center of the oven and place a cookie sheet on center rack.
Combine all liquids in a large mixing bowl.
Blend in the cornstarch and mix.
Add Glory Foods® Sweet Potato Casserole and mix thoroughly until smooth.
Pour mixture into the prepared pie shell.
Place filled pie shell in oven on the cookie sheet.
Bake for 10 minutes.
Reduce heat in oven to 300 degrees and bake for approximately 40 minutes.
Test the filling. The filling is cooked when the tip of a knife inserted in the center is clean when removed.
Bake until filling is set.
Carefully remove the pie from the oven. Allow to cool.
