Sweet Potato Pie, a subtly spiced Southern favorite that is often served during the American holiday season, especially Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Sweet Potato Pie is a traditional dessert, originating in the Southern United States. It is often served during the American holiday season, especially during Thanksgiving and Christmas.
For our Thanksgiving dinner last week, I decided to make a Sweet Potato Pie for dessert. Sweet potatoes are also frequently used in Singaporean cuisine, often as a dessert as well, such as "Sweet Potato Soup". At times, we would simply wrap the whole sweet potato in foil and place them in hot charcoal while we grill our main meal and then have the hot, soft sweet potato as a dessert.
This Sweet Potato Pie recipe is made easy and simple with store bought pie crust and canned sweet potatoes. The pie filling was quick & easy to make and so tasty & delicious. I actually found it to be pretty light too. It did not feel too dense nor too sweet. I will definitely be making this recipe again for Christmas!
Sweet Potato Pie
by Miss Crumbs A Lot, adapted from Trisha Yearwood
1 29oz Canned Sweet Potato
3/4 cup Sugar (divided)
4 tbsp Butter
1/4 cup Whole Milk
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1/4 tsp Ground Cinnamon
1/4 tsp Ground Nutmeg
Pinch of Salt
1 Unbaked 9" Pie Crust (I used Pillsbury)
1. Drain the liquid out from the canned sweet potatoes and blend them in a food processor until a smooth puree is formed.
2. In a bowl, beat 4 tbsp butter with 1/2 cup sugar with an electric mixer until creamy.
3. Add in 2 eggs, 1/4 cup whole milk, 1 tsp vanilla extract, 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon, 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg and a pinch of salt. Mix well with the electric mixer.
4. Place pie crust in a pie dish and pour mixture in. Sprinkle 1/4 cup sugar with a sieve (for an even spread) over and allow the pie to stand for 10 to 15 minutes before baking (to let sugar melt).
5. Bake at 300 degrees F for 60 minutes. Cool thoroughly and serve with whipped cream, if desired.
