Ingredients

1
cup pecans
1/2
cup bourbon whiskey
1 1/2
lbs sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch thick pieces
1/2
cup water
2
eggs
3/4
cup packed light brown sugar
2
tablespoons light corn syrup
1/3
teaspoon salt
1/3
teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8
teaspoon ground ginger
1/3
cup whipping cream
1
cup whipping cream, whipped
1
Pillsbury® Pet-Ritz® frozen deep dish pie crust (from 12-oz package)
  • 1 In small bowl, mix pecans and bourbon. Cover and refrigerate 8 hours or overnight.
  • 2 Heat oven to 375°F. In 13x9-inch ungreased baking dish, place sweet potatoes and water; cover with foil. Bake about 45 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Drain water; cool sweet potatoes 10 minutes.
  • 3 Drain pecans, reserving bourbon. In large bowl, mash sweet potatoes; add eggs, brown sugar, corn syrup, salt, cinnamon, ginger and reserved bourbon. Mix well. Gradually stir in 1/3 cup whipping cream, scraping bowl after each addition. Mix 1 minute longer. (Sweet potatoes have a coarse texture, so there will be some small lumps.)
  • 4 Pour filling into frozen pie crust; sprinkle with pecans. Bake about 45 minutes or until filling puffs and is lightly browned and knife inserted in center comes out clean.
  • 5 Cool completely, about 3 hours. Serve with whipped cream. Cover and refrigerate any remaining pie.
