Sliced Sweet Potato Pie

4 Sweet potatoes (med)
1 c Light brown sugar
1/2 ts Cinnamon
1/8 ts Nutmeg
1/2 ts Ginger
1/4 ts Salt
6 tb Butter or margarine
1/2 c Heavy cream

Pastry for 2-crust pie. Boil sweet potatoes until half-cooked, 15-20 minutes. Peel and slice thinly. Mix sugar, spices and salt. Place a layer of sweet potatoes in pastry-lined 9" pie pan, sprinkle with some of the sugar-spice mixture and dot with a little butter. Continue until all ingredients are used, dotting top with butter. Add cream. Adjust top crust:
flute edges and cut vents. Bake in hot oven (425 degrees) 30-40 minutes. If potatoes are still not tender reduce temperture to 350 F. and continue baking until done. Note: I tried the above baking directions and got a rather brown crust. When I tried baking it at an initial temp. of 425 F.
for 15 minutes and reducing it to 325 F. afterwards for 45 minutes more, I got a better crust and the filling was always cooked...
