Description

A Southern classic, Mini Sweet Potato Pies are great for the holidays. The perfect dessert with a sweet potato pie filling in a buttery crust.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 3 sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced
  • 1/2 cup of butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup pure cane syrup
  • 1 tbsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp. nutmeg
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup evaporated milk
  • Mini pastry shells, frozen

Instructions

  1. Peel, slice, and boil sweet potatoes for 30 minutes until softened. If you have more time, you can also bake your sweet potatoes. (See note below)
  2. In a large bowl, mash sweet potatoes then add in the remaining ingredients.
  3. Blend all ingredients until smooth (around 5 minutes) and place filling into frozen pie crusts.
  4. Bake for 45 minutes at 350 degrees.

Notes

You can also bake your sweet potatoes instead of boiling them. Preheat your oven to 350°F. Using a fork, make a few holes on the top of the sweet potato. Place them on a baking sheet and bake them for 1 hour. Allow to cool and peel back the skin.
