Made | For Thanksgiving
Sweet Potato Pie
Makes two 9 inch regular pies or one 9 inch deep dish pie
For the crust
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 sticks butter, very cold!
1 tbsp sugar
1 tsp salt
To make the crust...
Fill a 1 cup measuring cup with cold water, add ice cubes, and set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk the flour, sugar, and salt together. Dice your butter into cubes and sprinkle over the flour mixture. Work the butter in with a pastry cutter.
Drizzle 1/2 cup of the ice cold water over the butter and flour mixture. Use a rubber spatula to gather the dough. You might need 1/4 cup more water to bring it all together; add it 1 tbsp at a time.
Divide the dough in half, wrap in plastic, and shape into a disk. Chill in the fridge for at least an hour or overnight.
Or, you know, just buy some store-bought crust.
For the filling
1 1/2 cups cooked sweet potatoes, mashed
1 cup sugar
1 stick butter, melted
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
To make the filling...
Mix the sugar and the eggs. Add the sweet potatoes and mix to combine. Stir in the melted butter and vanilla. Stir in your milk and mix well. Pour into your uncooked pie crusts and bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for an hour.
1 package of sausage (looks like big Tootsie Rolls, I always use hot)
1 package Bisquick buttermilk biscuits
1 8 oz package sharp cheddar cheese
Throw all of your ingredients into a medium bowl, and mix well with your hands. Roll into balls and place on a lined cookie sheet. Bake for 15 minutes at 375 degrees Fahrenheit. And get ready for your house to smell like Christmas morning. Or, in this case, Thanksgiving morning.
