Wash and dry the sweet potatoes. Prick the skin of the sweet potatoes with a fork and place the potatoes on the prepared baking sheet. Bake the sweet potatoes for 45-50 minutes.
Peel the skin off each potato. Fully mash the potatoes until they are smooth. Add the butter into the mix and mix until fully combined. Add in the eggs and mix until smooth.
Next, add in the sugars, pumpkin pie spice, and salt. Mix until combined. When everything is smooth, add in the evaporated milk and vanilla and mix until fully smooth.
Pour the mixture into the thawed pie crust. Bake the pie in the oven for about 50-60 minutes. The mixture will be very stiff when ready. Let cool before serving.

It has all the warming spices and coziness you love and want from a fall treat.
