Sweet Potato Pie

As I commented yesterday, today I baked Sweet Potato Pie, using Alton Brown’s recipe. Here it is, fresh from the oven.

This being my third pie, I had no problem making my own crust. I started with apple pie. And you can hardly fail to follow up on Thanksgiving without making a turkey pot pie. Once that happens, there’s no end to blathering about pie.

I tend to follow recipes close as I can, but I had a suspicion that the yogurt was a substitute for something else, so I used sour cream instead. I also have mass quantities of garam masala, so I used that for the spices. And I forgot to toast the pecans first. Other than that, I followed it to the letter.

Guess what? It tastes just like sweet potato pie. Yum.

  1. Hey Bob! Nice to see you.

    Very true about the Alton Brown. What I like about this pie is that it’s not so sweet you fear for your teeth. It just lets the sweet potato flavor come through. I still think the best way to cook one is to wrap it in foil and roast it and mash it up with butter and salt and pepper.
