1/8 teaspoon salt

1/3 cup cold Land O Lakes® Butter cut into chunks

3 to 4 tablespoons cold water

Filling

1 1/4 cups firmly packed brown sugar

4 medium (1 1/2 cups) sweet potatoes,  cooked skins removed, mashed

3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1 cup evaporated milk

3 large Land O Lakes® Eggs

Topping

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 350°F.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine flour and 1/8 teaspoon salt in bowl; cut in butter with pastry blender or fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in enough water with fork just until flour is moistened. Shape into ball; flatten slightly.

  3. STEP 3

    Roll out ball of dough on lightly floured surface into 12-inch circle. Fold into quarters. Place dough into 9-inch pie pan; unfold, pressing firmly against bottom and sides. Trim crust to 1/2 inch from edge of pan. Crimp or flute edge. Set aside.

  4. STEP 4

    Combine all filling ingredients except evaporated milk, eggs and whipped cream in bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until well mixed. Add milk and eggs; beat at low speed until well mixed.

  5. STEP 5

    Pour filling into crust. Bake 50-60 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. If crust is browning too quickly, cover edge with 2-inch strip of aluminum foil. Cool completely. Garnish with whipped cream, if desired. Sprinkle with decorator sugar, if desired. Store refrigerated.

I used a super sweet variety called Becca’s purple. I reduced the sugar to 1 cup and as a result this pie turned out beautifully! Thank you for a wonderful recipe.
