Sweet Potato Pie and No Roll Crust

by Rachel | Studio Cuisine on November 18, 2012

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 ;)

This recipe can be found in the Joy the Baker Cookbook: 100 Simple and Comforting Recipes. It’s also located on Joy’s blog here.

Oh wow, I can’t believe this is your first pie attempt!! It looks amazing! You know, as an Australian I have never eaten sweet potato or pumpkin pie. The idea just seems so foreign to me. I might give this recipe a go though, since it’s so simple. Plus, I reckon I could justify a second piece of pie as it’s choc-full of vegetables, haha. Thanks for sharing, love your blog!
