This sweet potato pie recipe comes to us from Sharon Goldman of Colorado, USA. We found Sharon through her (very proud) son who heard about our search for the best cooks in the world. It is a wonderful pie – very American and quite unusual for us Aussies. We think it is something that should be part of our repertoire – it is the most delicious comfort food, and I challenge you all to stop at one slice. Sharon was given this recipe many years ago (through her own cooking club) by a friend whose family has been making it for generations.
We baked Sharon’s sweet potato pie in a gorgeous ‘Dune’ Le Creuset pie dish, available at www.everten.com.au. Once again, we’re thrilled to bits that the Everten crew have given us this pie dish (especially since I dropped my old favourite when we were shooting our last book).
Everten Online have pretty much everything we need in the kitchen and we don’t have to leave the house. Perfect!
I had no idea how to crimp pastry as it’s really not something anyone has ever taught me. So (like we all do) I googled it and found this great clip that explains how to do it.
