Store-bought cranberry sauce adds sweetness to sweet potato pie. 

Ingredients

    • 1 pound sweet potatoes, roasted until tender, then scooped and passed through a food mill (the potatoes should be warm for the recipe)
    • 4 ounces butter (1 stick; 1/2 cup)
    • 1/3 cup light brown sugar
    • 1/2 cup canned cranberry sauce
    • 2 eggs
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    • 1/2 teaspoon allspice
    • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 1 pie crust (store-bought)
    • whipped cream, for serving

Preparation

  1. Combine the warm sweet potatoes, butter, sugar and cranberry sauce in a bowl with an electric hand mixer.  Season with a pinch of salt.  Add the eggs and combine quickly to avoid curdling.
  2. Fold in remaining ingredients and scoop into a pie crust. Bake at 350 F. for 1 hour, or until the center is fully cooked.  Allow to cool for 30 minutes before slicing and serving. Serve with whipped cream.
