Sweet Potato Pie with Sweet Potato Goat Cheese
1 prepared pie crust
1 lb sweet potatoes (about 2 cups)
½ cup butter, softened
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
½ cup evaporated milk
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 tsp ground cinnamon
½ tsp ground nutmeg
¼ tsp ground cloves
¼ tsp ground ginger
1 Tbsp flour
4 oz sweet potato Celebrity goat cheese
Optional: Whipped cream
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
For the filling place the sweet potatoes in a large pot and fill with water just until it covers them. Bring to a boil for about 30 minutes or until fork tender (cut potatoes in half to reduce cooking time). Once done remove skin and place potatoes in a large mixing bowl.
With a hand mixer, beat together sweet potatoes, butter, brown sugar, evaporated milk, egg, and spices. Pour into prepared pie crust and crumble goat cheese on top. Using a knife gently swirl the goat cheese evenly around the pie.
Bake 50-60 minutes or until the center of the pie is just set. Let cool then chill in the fridge for at least 2 hours before serving. Serve with whipped cream, if desired.
