I love Sweet Potato Pie!! It is the ultimate "comfort food" treat.
I also love to experiment with my recipes to fancy them up some...so I am thrilled to share this recipe I created recently.
A Berry Sweet Potato Pie
1 1/4 cups of mashed, cooked sweet potatoes
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 1/2 cups of sugar
1 teaspoon Hazelnut Rum or rum extract
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 grated nutmeg
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
2 large eggs
1 cup evaporated milk
1 1/4 cup of fresh berries - combo of blackberries, blueberries and raspberries
1 (9 in) unbaked deep dish pie shell or your favorite recipe for a 9 inch deep dish crust
Preheat oven to 375
Combine the sweet potato, butter, sugar, extracts, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and flour in a large bowl. Mix until well blended and smooth. Stir in eggs and the milk.
Place berries in bottom of pie shell. Pour Sweet Potato mixture on top. Cover your pie edges to keep from burning.
Bake for 15 minutes at 375 and then reduce oven to 350 degrees. Bake 30-45 minutes longer until the pie sets in center.
Recipe Notes: I also like to peel a small apple (whatever you have on hand), dice it up and toss in the bottom with the berries.....2 yummii
