Sweet Potato Pie

 

Each year at Instructables we have a holiday cook-off, where everyone makes a traditional holiday dish and we compete to see whose is the best and which recipe will climb the pageview ranks. I needed something slightly different than my award-winning Pumpkin Pie, and so choose Sweet Potato Pie.

This Sweet Potato Pie recipe is a triangulation of three recipes: The Best Sweet Potato Pie from Cooks Illustrated; Sweet Potato Meringue Pie from Gourmet Today; and Sweet Potato Pecan Pie from Rosie’s Bakery All-Butter, Fresh Cream, Sugar-Packed, No-Holds-Barred Baking Book.

I thought Cooks Illustrated’s recipe didn’t have enough fat and the others were lacking in flavors besides sweet. Putting them together yields a pie that’s rich without being heavy and is clearly sweet potato (including small chucks of sweet potato flesh), but has complimentary flavors of whiskey, molasses, and caramelized brown sugar.
