It might be a dead giveaway based on my disposable pie pan below, but can you believe this is the first pie I’ve ever made?
As a pie newbie, this was the perfect one to start with. The best part about it by far is the no-roll crust. Just mix together a short list of ingredients, press into a pie pan, and voila, pie crust!
As someone who is not really a pie fan (can you say mushy fruit?), I was obsessed with this pie. I would imagine it’s similar to pumpkin pie (but I wouldn’t know…I’ve never had it) in both texture and flavor. The sweet potato pie I’m used to is more like a casserole, laden with sugar and topped with marshmallows. This pie is much more my style, and now that I mention it, it’s mild sweetness probably caters to some kind of marshmallow topping. It’s lightness makes this pie a great addition to your Thanksgiving dessert menu. If you’re lucky, it’ll prevent you from having to break out those stretchy pants this year ;)
