Cook the Issue 2010: Sweet Potato Pie

By Pielove, member

I have only recently gotten into making sweet potato pies, having been a staunch pumpkin fan for many years.  Now I am a convert.  This pie is delicious-- the filling is smooth and not-too-sweet (a key dessert feature here).  The spices are quite mild, but pleasant.  Also, the crust comes together quite easily and makes a great, flaky, buttery pastry.  I had some of the candied pecans and pepitas left over from the pumpkin layer cake, so I garnished with those-- that little bit of crunch and zing from the candied ginger was a great addition.

I am having a slow cooking week since I have two quilt hangings to finish, 3 to cut out, and I little girls purse to finish.

I'll be doing some veggies for sure, but nothing challenging. Also I found two Cat Cora books that I want to cook from so I have to plan for that as well. Posted: 6:23 am on September 8th
