Sweet Potato Pie


I finally made my sweet potato pie today, ahem... 4 days after Thanksgiving. LOL! Why? Because I already bought the sweet potato and every time I opened the refrigerator, it has been screaming at me to bake it. Oh well, it is the season for pie so let's have some pies before I have no mood to bake pie anymore. Therefore, I will have another one of my favorite pies coming up. But have to wait until we finish this pie first, got to do it one at a time.


I made everything from scratch, even the crust. Home made crust is so much better than the frozen pie crust, so even as lazy as I am, I just have to make my own pie crust. I guess a bonus now is I own a food processor, so it's way easier to make the crust, just let the food processor does its' job. While the pie dough resting in the refrigerator, I will prepare the sweet potato pie filling.


This is my favorite recipe that I have been using for years. It has never failed me and I totally loved it. I got the recipe from Allrecipe.com so click here for the recipe. Oh, I added 1 Tbsp. of cornstarch into the filling to thicken it more. Serve with whipped cream on the side. Little Edda totally loved it and always requested two pieces for herself!

Oh thank you steamykitchen. I probably make another one for Christmas as we love sweet potato pie. :)

Thanks singairishgirl. This pie is really good if you have not tried it before.

Oh thank you BBOven! I'm so glad you like it. :) Yeah hor, decorate with leaves for Thanksgiving and stars for Christmas...hehehe....never really thought of that before.

Thanks Andaliman! :)

Beachlover, if you love sweet potato pie, then really have to try this recipe when you finish the frozen one. ;)

Thanks Aquariusgal! As for my crust, I also used allrecipe.com recipe, here's the link:
http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Basic-Flaky-Pie-Crust/Detail.aspx

But instead of shortening, I used butter, as I don't buy shortening at all (even the one that said zero gram of trans fat still made with partially-hydrogenenated oil, so trans fat is still there). Hope you have success in this crust recipe, very easy and flaky too.
