Lemony Sweet Potato Pie

Total time: 70 minutes

Makes 8 Servings


2 cups mashed sweet potatoes

3 large eggs

1 can (5 ounces) evaporated milk

1/4 cup water

1/4 cup butter, melted

1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon lemon extract

1 cup sugar

1 unbaked pastry shell (9 inches)

Whipped cream


  • Preheat oven to 375°. Press mashed sweet potatoes through a sieve or food mill. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, water, butter and extracts. Stir in the sugar and sweet potatoes. Pour into shell.
  • Bake until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean, 50-60 minutes. Cover edges with foil during the last 20 minutes to prevent overbrowning if necessary. Cool on a wire rack. Serve pie with whipped cream. Refrigerate leftovers.

Cinnamon Pie

Total time: 50 mins


Pie crust

Cream cheese

Brown sugar

Eggs – you’ll need 2 whole large eggs + 1 egg yolk

Heavy cream





Ground nutmeg

Powdered sugar – for dusting

Whipped cream – for serving


  • Firstly, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. If using homemade pie dough, roll and fit your pie crust into a standard 9 inch pan. Crimp the edges, and place the pie crust in the refrigerator.
  • Place the cream cheese and brown sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer. Beat on high until light and fluffy, about 3-5 minutes. Scrape the bowl with a spatula, then beat in the two eggs plus one egg yolk. Scrape the sides of the bowl again, then set the mixer on low and mix in cream, flour, cinnamon, vanilla, salt and nutmeg. Continue to mix on low until very smooth: You want to make sure the spices are thoroughly and evenly blended in the batter.
  • Pour the creamy cinnamon filling into the prepared pie pan.
  • Bake the pie for 35 minutes, until the center seems set when jiggled, but not totallyfirm. Bake another 5 minutes if needed.
  • Once done, allow the pie to cool completely on a cooling rack. Cover with foil and chill in the fridge.

We hope you enjoy these delicious recipes!
