I make a lot of pies for my man, but had yet to make a sweet potato pie. He made the request for pie and I decided to try something new. After searching AR awhile I came across this recipe...
Oh. My. God. It was perfect. Mine cooled overnight, but it was set up when I pulled it out of the oven!
For the most part, I followed the directions. There's a couple minor tweaks I made though:
1. To cook my sweet potatoes, I simply stabbed them and baked them in the microwave. Easiest, fastest, and to me best way to cook em up.
2. I cut the bake time from 70 minutes to just 60 minutes. The top of my pie was a dark orange/brown.
3. To spice the pie (since the recipe leaves that up to you) I used three spices (in order from most amount, to least amount): cinnamon, nutmeg, & ginger. I only use approx. 1/4 teaspoon of ginger, and just went up from there. It all depends on your taste!
I was super nervous making the pie, my 'mashed' sweet potatoes didn't look anything like they should, they were clumpy. But, it baked up very well and we like a little texture to our pie. If you want it smooth I'd recommend using a hand mixer with the buttermilk to smooth it out!
Very, very good!
