    Lalaloula's Note:

    I found this pie in an edition of BH&G which I recieved during a cookbook swap here on zaar. I really liked the flakey crust and the yummy filling.

    My Private Note



    9 inch ...

    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 large sweet potatoes (about 1 3/4 lbs)
    • 1 1/4 cups flour (I used spelt)
    • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
    • 1 teaspoon allspice
    • 1 pinch salt
    • 1/3 cup butter
    • 5 tablespoons ice water (might need more)
    • 1/4-1/2 cup brown sugar (depending on how sweet you like your pie, original recipe called for 1 cup)
    • 3 eggs, slightly beaten
    • 3/4 cup whipping cream
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons allspice, ground
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla
    • 1/8 teaspoon salt
    • 1 teaspoon orange peel, finely shredded (optional)


    1. 1
      Peel and dice sweet potatoes. Boil until tender, about 20-25 minutes. Drain and mash with a potato masher. Put aside.
    2. 2
      For the crust: In a big bowl combine flour, sugar, 1 ts allspice and the salt. Cut in butter (using a knife or your fingers) until mixture resembles coarse sand. Sprinkle 1 tbs of the ice water over the flour mixture and gently toss with a fork. Push moistened dough to side of bowl. Repeat moistening flour mixture, using 1 tbs of ice water at a time, until all mixture is moistened (you might need more than 5 tbs).
    3. 3
      Form dough into a ball. On a lightly floured surface use your hands to slightly flatten the dough. Roll out into a circle of 12 inches in diameter.
    4. 4
      Transfer dough to a 9 inch pie plate. If you have any extra dough, fold it under. Crimp edges as desired. Do not prick the dough.
    5. 5
      Preheat oven to 190°C/ 375°F.
    6. 6
      For the filling: From your sweet potato mash measure 1 1/2 cups. In a medium bowl combine this, brown sugar, cream, eggs, 1 1/2 ts allspice, vanilla, orange peel (if using) and salt.
    7. 7
      Pour filling into prepared pie plate.
    8. 8
      Bake for 40-45 minutes or until knife inserted near the centre comes out clean. NOTE that you might have to cover the pie after 25 minutes or so to prevent overbrowning.

      What a tasty sweet potato pie Lalaloula. We really enjoyed this quick and easy to make treat. My dh & I really enjoyed the texture of these light and subtley flavored tarts. I made 20 tarts out of the filling, sooo good. They were wonderful served with a little coolwhip. Thank you for sharing a recipe that I will make often.
