    My Sweet Potato Pie

    I've been planning to do a sweet potato pie for some time. I spent a lot of time googling recipes, but they all seemed to have some quirk, like: odd use of different fats (what's wrong with real butter?), condensed vs separated milk et.c. And not to mention 50 shades of pie crusts. I've baked a lot of pies, so I figured I might as well create my own recipe.

    Well, here goes. It's easy to make, stays very true to this Southern classic, and tastes great.


    Filling
    • 1.5 lb sweet potatoes (1 large or 2 small)
    • 2 eggs
    • 7 tbsp heavy cream
    • 1.8 oz butter
    • 1.8 oz brown sugar
    • 0.5 tsp salt
    • 1 tsp vanilla sugar
    • 0.5 tsp cinnamon
    • 0.5 tsp ground nutmeg (dried)
    • 0.5 tsp ground ginger (dried)

    Pie crust
    • 1.3 cups wheat flour
    • 4.4 oz butter
    • 0.5 tsp salt
    • 2 tbsp sugar

    Instructions
    • Bring the butter out to room temp an hour before cooking.
    • Turn the oven on and set it to 175° C / 350° F.
    • Peel and roughly cube (1.5-2") the sweet potatoes and boil in water in a pan until soft. This usually takes 15 minutes. Get rid of the water and rinse with cold water.

    Pie crust
    • Mix the pie crust ingredients in a bowl or food processor and work lightly until ingredients are well blended.
    • Fill the pie plate with an evenly thick layer of the pie crust.

    Filling
    • Mix the ingredients for the filling in a bowl and blend or whisk until smooth.
    • Fill the pie crust with the filling and bake in the oven for 40 minutes.

      I did that a few years ago. I learned the hard way. The birds had a feast all night, cleaned it out proper. No more. That pie has one destination: my belly!

        That's beautiful, Hank. I'll bet that crust would make a great base for a cheesecake, or, looking at it from the other side, a crust made from crushed ginger snaps and butter might be good with your sweet potato filling.

        That looks fantastic.
        I have nothing better to do tomorrow while my first own cured brisket has it's moment in the heat.
        So we'll call it "Our sweet potato pie" after I'm done 😊.
