Yay! It’s that fun time when I ask a friend to give me a recipe they love to make this time of year and I mix and match it! This month, I asked my sweet friend Erin over at Blue-Eyed Bride to share one of her favorite November recipes with me and she sent me her Sweet Potato Casserole recipe, so I turned it into a pie…
…a Streusel Topped Sweet Potato Pie!!
I’m not going to lie…I might have had a slice for breakfast. If you’re looking for a new pie recipe for Thanksgiving, I highly recommend you give this one a try! Not only is it absolutely delicious, it’s really simple too!
If you watched me make my Streusel Topped Pumpkin Pie on Today, all I did was substitute 1 (14 oz) can of pumpkin puree for the mashed sweet potatoes here. Easy substitution!
You will need 1 1/2 cups of mashed and cooked sweet potatoes for this recipe. You can either bake up two sweet potatoes and use the filling or you can mash up some canned sweet potatoes, drained. Either way, a very yummy pie!
Shopping List to make the pie:
1 1/2 cups mashed sweet potatoes (or 1 (14 oz) can of pumpkin like Libby’s)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
1 uncooked pie shell (either homemade, from the refrigerator section or the freezer department)
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
In a large mixing bowl, beat with an electric mixer the first 5 ingredients until smooth. Pour mixture into pie shell and bake at 425 degrees for 15 minutes, then reduce heat to 350 degrees and bake another 20 minutes. Add streusel topping (see below) and bake another 15 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool at least 30 minutes before slicing and serving.
To make the streusel topping:
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons flour
2 tablespoons butter, slightly softened and cut into pieces
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup pecan pieces
In a small bowl, combine all of the streusel ingredients. The consistency will be crumbly. When it’s time, sprinkle the topping over the top of the pie and continue baking.
So, my version is a fun Turkey Day dessert…Erin’s original recipe is a yummy side dish for your Thanksgiving…
…how good does that look?!?! A piece of turkey and a helping of that and I’m good on Thanksgiving!
3-4 cups cooked and mashed sweet potatoes or canned yams
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup half and half
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon cloves
1 teaspoon vanilla
For the topping:
1/2 cup melted butter
2 cups light brown sugar
1 cup flour
2 cups pecan pieces
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Lightly grease a 9×13 baking dish. Set aside.
Mix sugar, butter, half and half, eggs, spices and vanilla into the mashed sweet potatoes. Pour into prepared baking dish.
Combine all of the topping ingredients together in a small bowl and pour on top of the sweet potato casserole.
Bake the casserole about 25 minutes or until lightly browned and bubbly.
