Known more in the South, Sweet Potato Pie has been around for hundreds of years, and for good reason. It’s good! If you plan ahead, cook 3 extra Sweet Potatoes the night before when you’re having them for dinner. Save them in the refrigerator and that will be one less step to this incredible pie. Sweet Potatoes are high in nutrition, and very delicious, we have them often. I sub out half the White Sugar for Dark Brown Sugar because it gives you a more flavorful Pie. You can use all White Sugar if you prefer.
1 – 9” Unbaked Pie Crust (I love King Arthur Flour’s Crust)
2 cups Sweet Potatoes, Cooked
2 TBSP Salted Butter, room temp
Scant ½ cup White Sugar
½ cup Dark Brown Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1 TBSP AP Flour
½ cup Buttermilk or Heavy Cream
¼ tsp Baking Soda
½ tsp Ginger*
1 ½ tsp Cinnamon
¼ tsp Allspice
1/8 tsp Nutmeg
Quickly mash the cooked Sweet Potatoes with a fork and measure out 2 cups. Add to mixer bowl and beat them until they are smooth and lump free. (You will end up with a smoother pie.) Then add Butter, Eggs, Sugars. Beat well.
Add Vanilla, Flour, Buttermilk, Baking Soda, Ginger, Cinnamon, Allspice, and Nutmeg. Beat well and pour into unbaked Shell.
Bake at 350° F for 65-70 minutes or until center is set. I jiggle the pie, and if it looks set, it’s done. You can also stick a butter knife in the center. If it comes out clean, the pie is set. Serve Warm or Chilled. Serve with Whipped Cream.
* I don’t like the Seasonings to over-power the flavor of the Sweet Potatoes. You can add more than I call for if you’d like.
