I am in love with this pie. If it's wrong to have multiple pieces a day, then I don't want to be right. I can't wait to make it for my family at Thanksgiving.

How to Make Sweet potato pie with ginger streusel

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat oven to 400 degrees. On a floured surface, roll out pie dough and fit to your pie dish.
  • 2If you haven't already, boil your peeled sweet potatos until they are completely cooked. Once soft, puree sweet potatos until smooth. Add some half and half (about a tbsp) if they are not pureeing easily.
  • 3Add pureed sweet potatos, evaporated milk, sugars, and eggs to a large bowl. Mix together. Add in spices, salt, vanilla, and butter. Mix until completely combined. Stir in orange zest.
  • 4Pour filling into pie shell. Bake for 30 minutes.
  • 5While pie is baking, prepare the ginger streusel. In a food processor, combine cookies, butter, sugar and flour. Pulse until mixture is combined and very crumbly.
  • 6Remove pie after baking for 30 minutes and sprinkle streusel on top. Return pie to oven and bake for an additional 13 minutes.
  • 7Let cool. In a cold bowl, mix together cream, syrup, and sugar. Continue to mix until the cream thickens and forms whipped cream. Dollop on pie and sprinkle cinnamon sugar on top.
