So, let’s dig right in….
Sweet Potato Pie Recipe (one pie)
· 4-6 sweet potatoes (cooked)
· ¼ tsp each: cardamom, cinnamon
· Dash of nutmeg
· ¼ cup raisins
· ½ tsp sea salt
· 1 pie crust
Prepare pie crust (recipe below). Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. While you’re waiting, mash the sweet potatoes and mix in all ingredients in the list above. Fill the pie crust just below the edge and bake for 35-40 minutes. It will puff up a bit and then fall slightly once it’s out of the over and starting to cool. No worries! That’s normal.
Sweet Potato Pie Crust (light pressed – one crust)
· ¾ cup oat flour
· ¾ cup brown rice flour
· ¼ tsp sea salt
· ¼ to 1/3 cup oil
· 2 to 2 ½ Tblsp ice water
Preheat oven to 400. Combine dry ingredients. Rub oil in with fingers. Add just enough water so the dough holds together but is crumbly. Press into a lightly floured pie pan. Flute edges. Prick well with fork. Bake 10 – 12 minutes or fill with pie filling and bake.
Of course, this crust can be used for other pies, not just the sweet potato pie! Once you taste this treat, you’ll prefer this pie crust to any others. After all, it’s so much healthier than the other kinds!
