How to Make Maple Sweet Potato Pie

Step-by-Step

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix together the sweet potatoes, 2 eggs, sugar, maple syrup and butter with a mixer on medium-low speed until light and fluffy.
  3. Add the cinnamon, vanilla, salt, nutmeg, allspice. Slowly beat in the half and half, mixing just until well combined.
  4. Set aside.
    Press the dough into a pie pan. Prick the bottom and sides of the dough with the tines of a fork. Brush the crust with the optional egg white, if using. (Refrigerate the egg yolk for another purpose or discard.)
  5. Pour the reserved sweet potato mixture into the pie dough. Place on the center rack of an oven.
  6. Bake until filling firmly sets, about 45 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
