One day I decided to make sweet potato pie & I didn't know what to put in it. I looked at a couple of recipes online to get the measurement ideas. I just started putting in a little bit of everything & it came out delicious! My family & friends wanted more so I even made a second batch!
- 1 unbaked 9-inch deep dish pie pastry
- 1 (15 ounce) can sweet potatoes
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1 cup white sugar
- 3⁄4 teaspoon nutmeg
- 3⁄4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 1⁄2 cup butter, melted
- 1⁄2 cup milk
- 3 tablespoons light corn syrup
- 1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon honey
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Pull out pie shell and let thaw.
- Mash sweet potatoes in a large bowl. Put the 2 beaten eggs in the potato mixture & mix until well blended.
- In a separate bowl, mix together white sugar, nutmeg, cinnamon, brown sugar, & flour. Pour into the potato mixture & blend. Add in milk & mix until well blended.
- In a separate bowl, blend together melted butter, corn syrup, vanilla, & honey. Add to the potato mixture & blend.
- Pour potato mixture in pie shell. Bake in oven for 50 minutes, or until set.
This is an excellant tasting sweet potato pie! But, while I thought the pie was a tad bit sweet, my husband didn't think so. The next time I happen to make the pie, I'll probably cut back on the corn syrup at least by a tablespoon. I did however, add a bit more of the canned sweet potatoes, just an ounce more, and the brand of canned sweet potatoes I used was... Bruce's. I also used canned evaporated milk (not regular milk) plus I used a regular 9-inch pie plate, rather than a deep dish pie plate. I definitely 'am looking forward to making this pie again. Thank you Le Jeune Cuisinier for posting the recipe. This recipe is definitely a keeper!
This is great sweet potato pie. I make it for the major holidays like Easter,Thanksgiving and Christmas. I use fresh sweet potatoes instead of the canned stuff. And I accidently made it with graham cracker crust one day and haven't looked back.
