PostSubject: How to Make Sweet Potato Pie   Sat Dec 08, 2007 9:22 pm

Sweet potato pie is popular in the southern United States. It's not as sweet as pumpkin pie, but it looks awfully similar. Serves 8.
Difficulty: Moderate
Things You'll Need

* Aluminum Foil
* Groceries
* Dinner Forks
* Large Mixing Bowls
* Pie Pans
* Rolling Pins
* Wire Racks
* 1/4 tsp. ground allspice
* 1 c. buttermilk
* 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
* dried beans
* 3 slightly beaten eggs
* 1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
* piecrust dough
* 1/8 tsp. salt
* 1/2 c. sugar
* 1 lb. sweet potatoes
* whipped cream

Step One
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
Step Two
Scrub sweet potatoes with a brush, pat dry, and prick with a fork in several places.
Step Three
Bake potatoes for 40 to 50 minutes or until they're very tender. Cool until you can handle them with your hands.
Step Four
While potatoes bake, roll out the pastry dough and line a 9-inch pie plate with the pastry. Crimp edges as desired. (See "How to Make Piecrust Dough.")
Step Five
Line the pastry with a piece of aluminum foil that has been folded in half. Make sure it covers all the dough. Put a handful of dried beans or pie weights over the foil.
Step Six
Bake the pastry in the 450-degree oven for 8 minutes. Remove foil and bake 4 more minutes.
Step Seven
Take baked and cooled potatoes and cut them in half lengthwise.
Step Eight
Scoop the pulp of the potatoes into a large mixing bowl and mash them to a pulp.
Step Nine
Stir in sugar, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg and salt. Add eggs. Beat lightly with a fork until just combined.
Step Ten
Gradually stir in buttermilk. Mix well.
Step Eleven
Put the pastry shell on the oven rack and carefully pour filling into shell.
Step Twelve
Cover the edge of the pie with foil. Reduce the oven temperature to 375 degrees F. and bake 25 minutes.
Step Thirteen
Remove foil and bake 25 more minutes, or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean.
Step Fourteen
Cool for 30 minutes on a wire rack.
Step Fifteen
Chill at least 2 hours in the refrigerator before serving.
Step Sixteen
Serve with whipped cream.

Tips & Warnings

* To transfer a rolled-out piecrust to the dish, wrap it around the rolling pin, then unroll the crust into the dish. Don't stretch the crust into the pan, or the crust will shrink when you bake it.
* The dried beans are used so that the piecrust doesn't bubble.
* What American supermarkets call "yams" are actually a variety of sweet potato. You can use either the light "sweet potato" or the darker "yam" for the pie.
