I don't know if it was because I overcooked the sweet potatoes (mine did NOT cook in 45 minutes- but they were huge! I ended up only needing 1 for the recipe) but my pie had a weird texture. I really liked the crust- I may even use it for cheesecake in the future as an alternative to graham cracker crust- but I probably won't make this again.
Sweet Potato Pie with Cream Cheese Swirl
From EatingWell: November/December 2012
This creamy sweet potato pie recipe is seasoned like a pumpkin pie with plenty of cinnamon and nutmeg and gets nice ginger flavor from the gingersnap crust. For the best results, roast sweet potatoes in the oven; in a pinch, microwave them instead.
6 Reviews for Sweet Potato Pie with Cream Cheese Swirl
My kids loved this pie. Even my picky eater. I do not have a food processor so it took me a little longer to create this pie. It is now a family favorite.
The first time we made this, we followed the recipe exactly and it was absolutely delicious. The second time (less than a week later), we doubled the ginger snap cookie crust - we like a thicker crust, and used slightly less than 2/3 of a cup of brown sugar - it was a little too sweet for us. We loved how easy this was to put together. The kids (almost 3 years old) helped prepare the pie- except making the swirls and patting the crust. I love that it's a guilt-free, delicious dessert for my family. Thank you for the fantastic recipe!
my fiance does not like pumpkin pie, and he thought this was delicious- lightly sweet and had a wonderful creamy texture. i will definitely make this again- it would be very quick to make 2 of these at once. i used a standard pie plate and the crust-to-filling ration was great
I wanted to try something different this year, and I love sweet potatoes, so this pie was perfect. I also liked the fact that I could do some of the steps ahead of time, like making the cookie crumbs and roasting the sweet potatoes.
I followed the recipe exactly. My crust did burn a little around the edges at the end. Next time, and there will be a next time, I will bake at lower temperature for a little less time.
I like the idea of increasing the filling, like the previous reviewer mentioned. I loved this pie and will definitely make it again, and will also recomend it to others as well.
