Sweet Potato Pie — 30 Comments

  1. I’d love to see a recipe for those pies! Do you think the little mini pies might be made using canned sweet potatoes? I’ll be watching and waiting for that recipe to show up. I really enjoy your blog!

    • Absolutely! We could call them “quick and dirty” mini pies! LOL! Heat them, smash them, add butter, sugar and voila! I’m so glad you like the blog! Keep those comments coming!

  2. Oh gosh Pamela……….don’t even go there with BW about canned sweet potatoes!!

    The pies look great (minis are adorable) and I know they are worth the effort in taste. Just think of the physical work as being good for your pecs and arms.

  3. Woooo I made spinach pie. Not sure about sweet potato, ones I bit into I regretted. Let’s see can’t see bourbon as BW flavoring, cane syrup is out, hmmmm. Molasses? probably not. Nutmeg or ginger be too easy.

    I am gonna cheat and ask my chief chitamaka, Roger Stouff.
    Not that he would know. LOL.

    In the crust? Got to be an egg.

    I miss Hubig’s. Gonna have to start LLC for Hubig’s for Yankees and Beernuts for Coonasses. HuYaBeeCoo got nice ring y’all think?

    Kim, pretty common up here in central Illinois. Not eastern Illinois though.

  4. Those look yummy. Sweet potato pie is essential around here. Have you ever made grape dumplings? Its a traditional end to a meal for most of our tribal feasts. So good!

    • Grape dumplings? That must be from the plains Indians!!!! Never heard of it! Do you want to start off with a recipe? Email it to me and I’ll shape it into a blog post! Oh, and photos!!!

  5. Ok, BW here’s an idea for the future. Let everyone send in a recipe. Grape Dumplings sound very interesting. BTW, you wouldn’t have to make a pie for the “under 21” crowd. The alcohol will evaporate or dissipate (whatever the term) when baked. BUT, If you insist on baking one “with” and one “without”, I’ll have the one without!

  6. Oddly I just started making sweet potato pies a few years back, was always pumpkin pies before that. I lubs me some pumpkin pie, but I now lubs sweet potato too. I use Steens in mine, and I gots to have my gingered whipped cream on top.

    Ya know I have some fresh taters in the pantry, it might just be a sweet potato pie day!

    And as to Hubig’s thats what ya found in ya pack when you went camping to let ya know that Mom was thinking about you and you were not as grown up as ya thought. Moms, ain’t they great! (Cherry FTW)

      • Whip a cup of cold heavy cream, whip in about 1 Tbsp. of powdered sugar, add powdered ginger (however much you like, ground ginger, roasted ginger, candied ginger).

        I actually usually use this for me :

        Grind up a few and just add them. Nothing special, just a box grater and watch your fingers.

        A Lady friend actually made the crystallized ginger each year and gave it as little Christmas presents to friends, I don’t get any anymore so I now can afford it, its easier, and its almost as good.

        Nothing special. The fresh ginger root even grated is too tuff to use. Don’t even think about it.

  7. I will work on that. I never use a recipe so I will have to recruit the kids to help me take pictures and notes while I cook.

  8. I sure wish you would cut the pie open so we can see the inside. I want to see the crust on the bottom. Please indulge me……….I haven’t posted in a long time.

  9. That pie looks yummy. Would love to have the recipe. I got bored with making pumpkin pie a few years ago and just gave it up. I love making pies from scratch and make a descent apple pie, but would love to try my hand at sweet potato pie. If I come before the mission trip in March will you divulge the secret ingredient?

  10. This design is spectacular! You certainly know how to keep a reader amused.
    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost.
    ..HaHa!) Fantastic job. I really loved what you had to
    say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!

  11. I grew up off these sweet dough sweet potato pies. Yes there is a secret ingredient left out. My great-great- great, grandmother baked these pies. Great taste! No can sweet potatoes dont8have the same taste. But if you like it, fine. Enjoy; and thanks for sharing.
