Sweet Potato Pie 2 (Candied Yam Pie)

Have leftover sweet potatoes after your Thanksgiving dinner that you're looking to be rid of? Look no further! 




Ingredients:

2 cups leftover sweet potatoes, mashed/pureed (CANDIED YAMS FOR THE WIN!)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tbsp molasses
1 tsp vanilla
1 can sweetened condensed milk (14oz)
1/2 stick melted butter, cooled (4 tbsp)
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1/8 tsp ground ginger
2 prepared pie crusts (frozen or your favorite recipe)
Marshmallows (optional)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350ยบ. 

Combine all ingredients except crusts and marshmallows in a large mixing bowl until well blended. Divide evenly between the two crusts. Bake for 35-45 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. 

Top the pies immediately with marshmallows, return to the oven on your broil setting, juts until marshmallows are toasted. (optional) 

Cut yourself a large slice.




Then, top with whipped cream. If you're cool enough, that is.

  1. Can you use canned candied sweet potatoes? Would the recipe change?

  3. Yes! I've made this with canned yams/sweet potatoes as well, and it turned out just as delightful. You would just mash what you have, and then measure the 2 cups out for the pie, or 1 cup if you're doing half of the recipe. If you're doing half, just remember to half all of the ingredients instead of just the yams/sweet potatoes. Happy baking!

  4. I love the deep color of this pie. Must be the addition of the brown sugar. I was torn between doing pumpkin or sweet potato but this one could win out! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving :)
