Sweet Potato Pie with Cream Cheese Swirl Recipe
Sweet Potato Pie with Cream Cheese Swirl My kids loved this pie. Even my picky eater. I do not have a food processor so it took me a little longer to create this pie. It is now a family favorite. Pros: Tastes great Cons: You need a food processor
Perfect Kids in the Kitchen Recipe The first time we made this we followed the recipe exactly and it was absolutely delicious. The second time (less than a week later) we doubled the ginger snap cookie crust – we like a thicker crust and used slightly less than 2/3 of a cup of brown sugar – it was a little too sweet for us. We loved how easy this was to put together. The kids (almost 3 years old) helped prepare the pie- except making the swirls and patting the crust. I love that it’s a guilt-free delicious dessert for my family. Thank you for the fantastic recipe! Pros: Easy quick healthy only a food processor to clean and a few measuring tools
Almost Looked Like the Picture! I wanted to make something different for Thanksgiving this year since I do not care for pumpkin pie and this looked beautiful in the picture. I decided to make a test run to see how it was before making it for Thanksgiving. I bought all of the ingredients and with the ginger snaps sweet potatoes and yogurt I have enough left over for a second pie. I also prepped for two so I would not have to run the cookies and potatoes through the food processor again. I used a 9 inch deep dish glass pie plate and pressed my cookie crumb crust up to the top edge where you normally would. However when I filled it I had more than half an inch of crumbs at the top with nothing to support them. On the second pie that I plan to make I am going to increase my recipe by twenty percent so my pie fills the pan. If you do not want to do that then use a pie plate that is not a deep dish variety. As my pie cooled the top cracked so I think I will bake the second one in a water bath. It is my plan to make it a week ahead and freeze it so I will not have to do everything the day before Thanksgiving. The taste was light and not overly sweet. The crumb crust also held together well with the exception of the excess at the top — that fell apart. The photo that I have attached is of this “test” run. It looks pretty good for a test. Pros: Easy to make Enough ingredients for two pies Cons: None that I found
better than pumpkin pie my fiance does not like pumpkin pie and he thought this was delicious- lightly sweet and had a wonderful creamy texture. i will definitely make this again- it would be very quick to make 2 of these at once. i used a standard pie plate and the crust-to-filling ration was great Pros: easy to make
This was really good – used 3 whole eggs. The 2 ounces of cream cheese is apparently 1/2 cup of cream cheese not 1/4 cup.
Great alternative to pumpkin pie I wanted to try something different this year and I love sweet potatoes so this pie was perfect. I also liked the fact that I could do some of the steps ahead of time like making the cookie crumbs and roasting the sweet potatoes. I followed the recipe exactly. My crust did burn a little around the edges at the end. Next time and there will be a next time I will bake at lower temperature for a little less time. I like the idea of increasing the filling like the previous reviewer mentioned. I loved this pie and will definitely make it again and will also recomend it to others as well. Pros: Easy to make & delicious Cons: May not be big enough to feed a crowd
Good Alternative to Pumpkin I don’t know if it was because I overcooked the sweet potatoes (mine did NOT cook in 45 minutes- but they were huge! I ended up only needing 1 for the recipe) but my pie had a weird texture. I really liked the crust- I may even use it for cheesecake in the future as an alternative to graham cracker crust- but I probably won’t make this again. Pros: Easy to Make Cons: Weird Texture
