Make filling: Preheat oven to 400F. and line a baking sheet with foil.
Prick potatoes and bake on baking sheet in middle of oven 1 to 1 1/4 hours,
or until very soft. Cool potatoes until they can be handled and scoop out
enough flesh to measure 2 cups, reserving any remaining flesh for another
use. In a blender or food processor puree potatoes with remaining filling
ingredients until smooth. Filling may be made 1 day ahead and chilled,
covered. Bring filling to room temperature before proceeding.

On a lightly floured surface roll out dough into a 14-inch round (about 1/8
inch thick) and fit into a 9- to 10-inch (1-quart) glass pie plate,
crimping edge decoratively. Chill shell 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 375F.

heated baking sheet in oven 1 hour, or until filling is set but center
still shakes, slightly. (Filling will continue to set as pie cools.) Cool
pie on a rack. Pie may be prepared up to this point 1 day ahead and
chilled, covered loosely. Bring pie to room temperature before proceeding.
