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 crust from 1 package (12 oz) frozen Pillsbury™ Deep Dish Pie Crusts (2 Count)

Steps

  • 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.

  • Frozen Pillsbury™ Deep Dish Pie Crusts make it easy to bring a homemade pie to a gathering because the crust comes in a handy disposable pan.
