Dark Brown Sugar
Prep time :
Bake/Cook time :
Yield :
One 9-inch pie


  • 4 evenly cubed sweet potatoes (about 2 regular sized sweet potatoes)
  • 1 cup packed Dixie Crystals Dark Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup evaporated milk
  • 1 unbaked 9-inch pastry shell
  • Crème Chantilly


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Boil cubed sweet potatoes in non salted water until fork tender, about 12-15 minutes. Remove from heat and drain. Transfer to blender or food processor and mix until very smooth. Measure exactly 2 cups of puree and transfer to bowl.
  3. Add evaporated milk, brown sugar and butter and whisk smooth. Whisk in eggs, spices and salt,
  4. Place pie shell on a cookie sheet and pour filling into pie shell. Place in oven for 15 minutes and then reduce heat to 350°F. Bake until pie no longer trembles in center and is set, about an additional 30 minutes.
  5. Place in refrigerator for at least 2 hours before serving. Serve with creme chantilly if desired.
