Pie # 21: Sweet Potato Pie (with cinnamon roll crust)

I have never eaten sweet potato pie. We'll find out tomorrow if I like it :) From what I understand, sweet potato pie tastes very similar to pumpkin pie. This recipe came with the Cinnamon Roll Crust recipe that was pinned on Pinterest - I can't wait to sample it after dinner!

(Printable version)

Cinnamon Roll Crust

1 1/2 cups cooked, mashed and cooled sweet potatoes
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup half & half
3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon salt
large marshmallows (cut in half for topping)

Prepare crust and brush with 1 egg white whisked with 1 teaspoon water. Set aside.


Peel, cut, boil, and mash sweet potatoes. Mix with brown sugar, heavy cream, half & half, eggs, vanilla, cinnamon, cloves and salt. Beat until smooth.


Slowly pour filling into pie crust.

Bake at 400 degrees for 40 minutes or until filling is puffed up and inserted toothpick comes out clean.

Remove from oven. Turn on broiler and place halved marshmallows on top of pie. Place pie under broiler until marshmallows are toasted (about 1 minute). Cool and serve.
