Sweet Potato Custard Pie | Can't Stay Out of the Kitchen

Sweet Potato Custard Pie

June 28, 2012Teresa

Sweet Potato Custard Pie is awesome. No kidding. I love sweet potatoes and there’s hardly anything better than a Sweet Potato Pie. But THIS Sweet Potato Custard Pie is to die for! I’m not kidding.

This pie has marshmallow creme and almond extract in the ingredients which put it over the top in deliciousness. I’ve made this recipe several times–it’s great for holiday baking but, quite frankly, it is SO good that you will want to make it frequently and sweet potatoes can be purchased all year round these days.

I found this recipe glancing through a Taste of Home magazine one year and wanted to try it since it had marshmallow creme listed in the ingredients. It is beyond A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!! It is the most sensational sweet potato pie you will ever taste. I think once you try it you will be hooked, too. You won’t want to make sweet potato pie any other way after trying it with marshmallow creme.

If you’re looking for a fantastic way to use up garden sweet potatoes, or you are looking to provide a special holiday treat for your family, than look no farther than this superb Sweet Potato Custard Pie recipe. You won’t be disappointed. In fact, I believe you will be as impressed with this delicious pie as much as I was when I first tasted it. We’ve served it to friends and given the recipe out to many. Whoever makes this recipe just loves it.

When I initially posted this pie right after I began my blog in June 2012, my pictures were taken with an iPhone 3 so they weren’t as clear and beautiful as I would have liked. That’s the way most of my first year posts turned out.

It’s a miracle anyone even wanted to follow my blog back in those days! I’ve been remaking all those first year recipes and recently remade this fabulous Sweet Potato Custard Pie for Christmas dinner 2015. It was lip-smacking good. 🙂

I can’t tell you how wonderful the marshmallow creme and almond extract enhance the flavors of this pie. Serve Sweet Potato Custard Pie with whipped cream or ice cream. A Snickerdoodle Ice Cream would be PERFECT on this fabulous pie!

While Sweet Potato Custard Pie has a little bit of cinnamon and nutmeg, it isn’t overly spiced. Instead, it get’s its terrific flavor from the marshmallow creme and almond and vanilla extracts in the batter.

Here’s what I did.

I used these ingredients, plus one unbaked pie shell.

For the pie filling: Mash cooked, sweet potatoes in large mixing bowl. Add marshmallow creme and softened or melted butter. Mix with an electric mixer to combine.

Add evaporated milk, eggs, vanilla, almond extract, sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour. Bleached flour toughens baked goods. Mix with an electric mixer to combine.

Pour mixture into a deep dish 10-inch unbaked pie shell. I used my homemade pie crust and baked at 350 for about 1 hour and 10 minutes. After the pie cooled I sprinkled it lightly with powdered sugar.

Serve plain, with Cool Whip or ice cream.

This is a great holiday baking dessert, but sweet potatoes are available year round so this is great to top off a bowl of Ham and Lima Bean Soup, La Madeleine’s Tomato-Basil Soup, or Chicken-Chickpea-Potato Soup.

Here’s the recipe.

Recipe Notes

NOTE: Preparation time does not include time required to bake sweet potatoes or make a Homemade Pie Crust.

NOTE: This recipe would probably also work with butternut or buttercup squash, or pumpkin.

NOTE: While the recipe calls for 3/4 cup marshmallow creme, I have used a full 7-oz. container when making this and it really amps up the marshmallow creme flavor. So adjust according to your taste.

NOTE: This is the most delicious Sweet Potato Pie I have ever tasted. The combination of marshmallow crème and almond extract give it a superior flavor. This is really a good selection for the holidays.
