Steps

  • 2 Place sweet potatoes in food processor; cover and process until smooth. In large bowl, beat sweet potato layer ingredients with wire whisk. Spread cream cheese mixture in frozen pie crust. Carefully spoon sweet potato mixture over cream cheese mixture.

Expert Tips

The cream cheese should not be softened. If the cream cheese mixture is too soft, it could bake into the sweet potato layer.

If preparing recipe with Spice Pack (included with the Pet-Ritz® pie crust packages for a limited time during fall) omit cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and salt.
