Sweet Potato Pie Recipe

HI, I am looking for a sweet potato pie recipe similar to one from an Amish restaraunt I recently had. It had a caramel taste to it. It didn’t have that traditional “pumpkin pie spice flavor” I’d appreciate any recipes. Thanks, Shanley

    Sweet Potato Pie makes 2 pies can be easily split for 1 pie

    Preheat oven 350 degrees

    6 tablespoons flour
    2 1/2 c. brown sugar
    2 c. cooked, mashed, sweet potatoes
    1/2 c. dark molasses or dark corn syrup
    4 eggs or 1 c. egg substitute
    1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
    2 pinches of salt
    2/3 cup of room temp butter or margarine, prefer real butter
    1 cup evaporated milk

    2 9inch pie shells, unbaked, I use deep dish pie shells

    Nothing fancy about mixing. Just start at top of list adding ingredients and mixing as you go. Once all ingredients have been mixed well pour into the pie shells. I always put my pies on the largest cookie sheet I have to catch any bubble overs. Bake for 55-60 minutes and maybe even longer to get the desired color, but try not to burn the pie crust. My mother gave me the recipe two or three years ago and I tweaked it with the brown sugar and dark syrup to get the desired flavor and overall color of the pie, which is more the caramel flavor, than just the sweet flavor with white sugar and light colored syrup. Our pies do not look anything alike and they do not taste anything alike and it is due only to the brown sugar and dark molasses or dark syrup. My pie is absolutely delicious. Give it a try. It is easily split to make one pie. I hope it becomes your favorite!

    With canned pumpkin costing $5.00 a can and up in our area, sweet potato pie is a good variant. I am planning on making a chocolate silk pie, too. I use Madeira or Demerrara sugar to get a richer flavour in my baked goods. I also buy fresh extracts and spices. In particular, I get the best cinnamon available because it makes such a difference in the Fall and Winter recipes.
