How to make it

**bake potatoes in advance or you can boil them if you’d like. I bake mine.
Preheat oven to 350
Place pie shells in oven bake until a very light brown
Mix All Ingredients
***Use a whisk while mixing it helps to get the strands out
Pour into pans and bake for 50 mins. depending on your oven temp. Pies should be full and firm
** the key to receive a pie of this consistency is tasting while mixing ..if you feel like it needs more of something add it..***
***I bake my potatoes because they are sweeter, better consistency and there’s no water in the potato from boiling...
*** My Mom Never Mixed Anything when making these pies she always instructed me to taste until I was satisfied with it…***
