  • 1 pie crust refrigerated or homemade
  • 3 cups mashed cooked sweet potatoes
  • 1/2 cup butter melted
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • whipped cream for serving


  1. Preheat the oven to 375.
  2. Roll out the pie crust to a circle that is approximately 13 inches in diameter, then transfer it to a 9 inch pie place. Press gently into the bottom and sides of the pie plate. Trim the crust so there is a one inch overhang, then fold over and crimp the edges of the crust with your fingers.
  3. Place a piece of foil inside the crust, then fill it with dried beans or pie weights. Bake 15 minutes, then remove the foil and the beans. Bake another 10 minutes, until the bottom of the crust looks dry. Remove from the oven.
  4. While the crust is baking, mix together the sweet potatoes, butter, brown sugar, sugar, eggs, heavy cream, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt, until well blended. Pour the filling mixture into the pie crust, and spread evenly.

  5. Bake 15 minutes, then reduce the temperature to 350 and bake 45-60 minutes, until the center does not jiggle when the pie is shaken gently. Remove from the oven and let cool at least 1 hour before serving.
  6. Serve with whipped cream, and refrigerate any leftovers.
