Sweet potato pie is another great dessert recipe for Thanksgiving. This recipe uses species, brown sugar and half-and-half to create a perfectly creamy pie.

  • Servings: 8


Your Favorite Single Pie Crust
2 Very Large Sweet Potatoes
½ cup Butter, softened
1 cup Firmly Packed Brown Sugar
½ tsp Salt
1 tsp Ground Cinnamon
½ tsp Ground Nutmeg
2 tsp Ground Ginger
1¼ cups Half-and-half
4 Large Eggs, beaten
Sweetened Whipped Cream, optional


Prepare single pie crust according to recipe directions, using a 9-inch pie plate.

Heat oven to 350F. Bake sweet potatoes 1 hour. Remove from oven. When cool enough to handle, peel sweet potatoes; cut into chunks (makes about 2 cups). Puree with butter in blender or food processor.

Add brown sugar, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and half-and-half. Puree. Add eggs. Pulse until well combined. Pour pie filling into prepared pie crust.

Bake 50 to 60 minutes. Cover crust with foil if necessary to prevent overbrowning. Remove pie from oven and set on cooling rack to cool before refrigerating.

Serve with sweetened whipped cream, if desired.
