I don’t bake a lot of Sweet Potato Pie, but someone requested it and I used this recipe.
Reviewers said this pie was good, but on the sweet side. I went back and read the reviews and a lot of people cut the sugar to 3/4 cup and used these proportions (1/2 granulated, 1/4 brown). So that’s what I’d do next time. I’ll update when and if I ever become more interested in Sweet Potato Pie.
Sweet Potato Pie
1 pound sweet potato, cut into thirds
4 oz salted butter, melted
1 cup granulated sugar (210 grams)
1/2 cup milk
2 large eggs
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon fresh nutmeg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 9 inch pie crust (homemade or Vodka crust)
Cook sweet potatoes in microwave. Let cool, then remove peels.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Break up sweet potatoes and put in food processor. Add butter and sugar and pulse 5 times to mix. Add milk, eggs, cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla. Puree until smooth – mine still had tiny lumps, but they weren’t a problem in the end.
Pour mixture into pie crust. Bake for 45 minutes at 350 degrees F.
