2 medium sized yams
1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
2 lightly beaten eggs
1/2 cup plus 3 tablespoons dark brown sugar, firmly packed
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
3/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/8 teaspoon ground allspice
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup evaporated milk
1 9 inch pie shell, partly baked
3/4 cup whipped cream

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Peel the yams and cut into 1-inch chunks. Put into a pan and cover with water, adding 1/4 teaspoon salt. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer about 20 minutes, until tender. Drain and put into a mixing bowl; cool slightly.

Add the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt to the yams with the eggs, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, allspice, vanilla and evaporated milk. Mix until smooth and blended.

Transfer filling to the partly baked pie shell and bake on the center rack 5 minutes. Lower heat to 325 degrees and continue baking 40 minutes, or until center is almost set but still soft.

Cool on a rack. Serve with sweetened whipped cream.
